    Subjectrx_copybreak value for non-i386 architectures

    I notice that many net drivers set rx_copybreak to 1518 (the max packet size)
    for non-i386 architectures. Once I thought I understood it and it seems
    related to cache line alignment. However, I am not sure exactly about the
    reason now. Can someone enlighten me a little bit?

    Basically I try to understand whether for MIPS architectures we need to set
    this value as well.
