I found at least one case which ended up in endless reset loop. The schedule cor_sreset enabled netif queues before the real reset has completed. This can very easily lead to timeout immediately after the reset. This should now be fixed in CVS (netif queues are stopped until the card is really resetted). This does not fix the cause for the reset in the first place, but at least the driver should be able to recover from card reset in some problem cases.
