I confirm that the above patch applied on top of v2.6.36-rc3 does not
show the problems that all the kernels since v2.6.35 (both stable
and Linus' tree) had.

My problematic machine has been running the patched 36-rc3 for 36 hours,
and couning, with "generic receive offload" enabled only my tg3 nic.

Thank you very much for the wonderful job, Eric!
Thanks to you, too, Jarek!
