Ok this should fix the last few bugs that needed closing, and some small
fixes for the token ring (afaik sktr still doesnt work but someone now
seems to know why which is good)

I've got several other drivers and good patches that are queued. I'm going
to sit on most of them until 2.2.14. The only stuff I want for 2.2.13 now
is bug reports (and preferably fixes). Just bug fixes.

I'd like to get the reported network delay stuff nailed if possible and also
the SMP hang reports. I'm not interested in reports that include the knfsd,
nfs client or Ingo raid patches. Not because I think they are bound to be
the cause but because I want less variables - ditto stuff built with
gcc 2.95 or later on x86

If you see hangs on unadulterated 2.2.13pre11 I definitely want to know. If
you can run the ikd patch and other tools to get dumps even better.
