    Subjectworkaround large MTU and N-order allocation failures
    Hello,

    Is there currently a workaround available for handling large MTU
    (larger than 1 page, even 2-order) in the Linux network stack?

    The problem with large MTU is external memory fragmentation in
    the buddy system following high workload, causing alloc_skb() to
    fail.

    I'm interested in patches for both 2.4 and 2.6 kernels.

    Thanks,
