"This is not a Mandriva-specific issue, the cause lies in the official kernel code, and the issue will affect any system or distribution that uses the affected kernels. It can cause the EEPROM data on Intel 82566 and 82567 network interfaces (part of the ICH8 and ICH9 chipsets) supported by the e1000e module to become corrupted, rendering the interface unusable.This bug is known to be present in all current 2.6.27 pre-release kernels."
