Subject:   4.5-PRERELEASE - WaveLAN errors

I have an Addtron AWA-100 WaveLAN PCI+pccard combo installed and am
getting kernel messages about oversized packets (especially during file
transfers).  Despite the errors, it's working.  I'm getting about 6Mbps
throughput (with up to 40 collisions per second).  Any ideas on how to
fix from userland -- or is this a kernel/driver problem?

Details to follow:
