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,
