New 2.4.18-18 kernel doesn't fix lockups

Half the posts about lockups seem to indicate a problem with the tg3 driver
and a recommendation to switch to the bcm5700 driver.

The other half appear to say exactly the opposite.

Just for the record, can anyone authoritatively say that the tg3 driver
is definitely the cause for the lockups and they do not happen with the
bcm5700 driver ?

Is there any other loss of functionality by using the bcm5700 driver ?

Which is the default one ? I am assuming it's the tg3, and the bcm5700
has to be downloaded.
