  Atheros AR81xx ( atl1c.ko ) drivers causes hangs while writing with
  NFS protocol

Status in linux package in Ubuntu:
  Won't Fix

Bug description:
  I purchased a foxconn minipc
  which uses atl1c.ko for its wired eth device (those modules seems to be
  used in several new nettops).
  The module is correctly installed by karmic and the device works using
  internet and for daily normal eth operations.
  But, when I mounted my NAS with the NFS protocol I was not able to write
  files on it and only reading was working fine.
  I was able to write on it only using samba protocol while NFS was
  causing nautilus to hang and the transfer bar was freezing. The only way
  to regain nautilus was to reboot the machine.
  Then I downloaded latest atheros driver at
  http://partner.atheros.com/Drivers.aspx (the file seems to be badly
  packaged so I repacked it at
  http://lnx.sensibile.it/files/foxconn/AR81Family-linux-v1.0.1.4.tar.gz > attached below)
  and compiled it.
  Then I finally had my eth device working with NFS protocol.
  Could be a good idea to update those
  driver/modules in the official ubuntu update repository.
