Has this corruption appeared on both 32 and 64 bit Linux flavors,

There's one driver for both platforms so I suspect it will happen on
both 32 or 64 flavours.

AFAIK reasons for the problem are still unknown but reports of
corruption presumably come so far from 64-bit machines.  It appears
that some race is involved so it may be that its window is easier to
hit with 64 bits?

64-bit hardware, certainly - presumably almost any hardware that
has the effected Ethernet card(s) would be a Core 2 or better 64-bit
machine.

But I'm fairly sure (it's been about a month, so I could be
mis-remembering) I've only tried installing 32-bit versions of Fedora
and Ubuntu - and my Ethernet card was affected.
