Sorry for offtopic but i have the same problem with kernels 2.6.25-*
like:
http://kerneltrap.org/mailarchive/linux-netdev/2008/3/27/1274804
http://kerneltrap.org/mailarchive/linux-netdev/2008/3/27/1270334

I search linux-netdev and found this links.
I only sugest that

Denys Fedoryshchenko

can have the same problem that i have with this kernels.
I must revert my all kernels to 2.6.23.11 to get stable work on high (ip
traffic) loads.

And there is no documentation for LRO... and Stephen Hemminger write me
that LRO is not compatible with bridgeing and routing.
see this link:
http://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=10335


So there must be some documentation for this ... because people can have
many problems with this.


Sorry for offtopic but this can resolve problems like my and Denys .
