kern/135222: [igb] low speed routing between two igb interfaces

look at my post "Bug in igb driver" from two days ago.
We had exactly the same issues using this adapter (and presumambly the
same board, your bug description matches 100% our setup :)
The following should fix those issues:
echo "dev.igb.0.enable_lro=0" >>/etc/sysctl.conf
echo "dev.igb.1.enable_lro=0" >>/etc/sysctl.conf
(this disabled large receive offloading - tuning this while the machine
is running has no effect).
I suggested putting this into the release errata, but got no feedback on
this request so far.
