1. We encounter invalid header sizes sometimes. Many packets sent before are sent with correct header sizes and then suddenly, we get invalid header sizes which causes a crash. This bug affects Realtek 8139 and Intel PRO/1000 along with others.
2. NdisMRegisterInterrupt gets called with InterruptVector == 0 and InterruptLevel == 0 which causes it to fail.
