It means that a 3c59 is not the same thing as a 3c509. Apparently something
in kernel '1637' has an error. Just use '1456' and file a bug report and
hopefully it will get fixed.
3c509! That was when parts were made to last, obviously. Still have several
of those in a storage box somewhere and use them on occasion.
