Well, the fact that this patch makes the symptom go away indicates that there
is some more fundamental problem hiding somewhere in the driver/hardware that
should get fixed all the way. It is, however, a valid workaround until the
real problem is identified.
Can you please submit a PR with the information in this thread? I will look
into the driver some more and commit the workaround if I fail to find the
real cause soon.
EVERYBODY: Could you please check if you have a rl(4) driven NIC and check if
you experienced a speed degradation as well. Please let me know either way
with information about the chipset on your NIC. Thanks!
