    It ought not to, but it seems that is the case where you
    saw the original corruptions, so hmmm...

    Actually, I see, the myri10ge driver does put up to
    64 bytes of the initial packet into the linear area.
    If the IPV4 + TCP headers are less than this, you will
    hit the corruption case even with the myri10ge driver.

    So everything checks out.

    Upon recent review I think jumbo frames in such drivers should
    actually be fine.
