Broadcom Gigabit and 2.4.21

Hi All,

I am about to place a new kernel on a PE2550 which has a Broadcom Gigabit
Ethernet adapter and an Intel Pro100.
It's currently using 2.4.7 and bcm7500 (module) for its drivers. I want to
put 2.4.21 on this server and I recall numerous problems with the tigon3
drivers causing massive lockups in the kernel. Is 2.4.21 stable with the
Broadcom Gigabit cards now?

Any advice would be great
