--- adapter dead after this --- rebooted.
* no MMAP; alternative 1 patch, mtu=1500; no errors; sustained transfer
rates about 25% lower than what I saw with mmap enabled...(before MMAP
enabled crashed).
* no MMAP mtu=9000; ran ok at low transfer rates - when high rates
kicked in, got the sky2 interrupt error & things went south:
Jan 7 15:09:28 mail kernel: sky2 0000:06:00.0: error interrupt
status=0x40000008
Jan 7 15:09:28 mail kernel: sky2 0000:06:00.0: error interrupt
status=0x40000008
After this, remote connections broke and I rebooted... decided to rerun
w/o MMAP again before going back to MMAP and trying those other sky2
options...
* Retest of no MMAP + Alternative 1 - just to confirm consistency.
Worked - no errors. Only version so far that allows the win7 backup to
complete.
* MMAP + NO DMAR + disable_msi=1... also works w/o errors... leaving
this one running for a while - also completed a backup successfully.
Fastest of the lot... about 3x faster than any other version, working or
not.
I'm leaving this one running for now. Not retesting jumbo for now. Be
happy to help dig further.

Tentative recommendations:

1) The af alternative patch seems rather necessary. First alternative
seems to be working, I'd suggest that be submitted and backported to 2.6.32.
2) Steven's pskb_may_pull patch also ought to be included and backported.
3) Jumbo frame support for yukon2 should probably be disabled until/if
fixed.
4) When possible I'll test dmar and disable_msi, and no dmar and no
disable_msi. When I first hit issues, I was running without DMAR, but
also without the above patches. I suppose the non-working permutations
need to be either fixed or invalidated (or well documented).
5) It would be nice if someone with comparable hardware could reproduce
these issues. FWIW, I can only recreate the crash running windows backup
to a cifs share. Copying large files doesn't seem to do it. Could also
be some other interaction going on here that perhaps others aren't
running - would be happy to compare notes.

Notes:
This *could* be coincidental, but maybe not...
With MMAP+NO DMAR + disable_msi there are far fewer ... actually almost
no... bind error reports... and no bind format error messages. With
NOMMAP and alternative one there are a few more bind error messages and
one format error message during the several hours that version was up.
All other configurations going back perhaps for two weeks have
significantly more bind error reports - and all versions show increasing
frequency of bind format errors (IPV6 only) in the roughly 10-15 minutes
preceding the lockup/crash/interrupt error messages. There are none
immediately preceding any crash, but perhaps there is some correlation
between the network errors and bind ipv6 packets.
