'diffing' the Xen e100 driver against the stock Linux one will be
very instructive. The patch is very short.

What's the recommended Linux driver for your card, 8139cp.c or 8139too.c ?

A quick glance reveals that the 8139too driver contains a `watch
thread' (interruptible_sleep_on_timeout). This will have to be
transformed into an event call back that uses schedule_timeout.
