One way to avoid the bug is to use the e1000 hardware network type. I
guess the rtl8139 driver that we ship in netdde has a bug in its irq
handling (we had already seen that kind of bug a long time ago in the
IDE driver). Moving to rump-based network drivers will probably help
fixing this kind of issue long-term :)
