Added netdev to get more attention to this.

What do you call 20-50% packet loss ?
(Losses to icmp flood itself, or tcp losses ?
Is the machine answering to icmp flood, or is it the origin ?

Are you saying packet loss was not occurring with 2.6.30 ?

Could you describe your methodology ?

You could give us results of "cat /proc/interrupts" from both
versions, because it sounds as an interrupt affinity problem.

# cat /proc/interrupts
# tc -s -d qdisc
# ifconfig -a
