Subject2.4.7-pre7, softirq and serial driver.
Hello

In Changelog to pre5 we can read:

-pre5:
- Andrea Arkangeli: softirq cleanups and fixes, and everybody is happy
again (ie I changed some details to make me happy ;)

I'm happy, because before pre5, I have a lot problems with my fast
serial cards (Titan Electronics) works with 921600 baud. Problems was with
reciving packets, ping has looked like this:


# ping pc-5.chl.pl -s 1600 -c 35 (1500 is MTU)

[...]
1608 bytes from pc-5.chl.pl (212.160.254.134): icmp_seq=20 ttl=128
time=44.596 msec
[...]
--- pc-5.chl.pl ping statistics ---
35 packets transmitted, 14 packets received, 60% packet loss
round-trip min/avg/max/mdev = 44.545/44.946/48.502/1.004 ms

As You see, there was a lot of (60%) packet loss from this host.

Now (with 2.4.6-pre7) ,is almost OK (just after reboot):

# ping pc-5.chl.pl -s 1600 -c 20
--- pc-5.chl.pl ping statistics ---
20 packets transmitted, 18 packets received, 10% packet loss
round-trip min/avg/max/mdev = 44.988/45.378/48.094/0.779 ms

Only 2 packets was lost! I was very happy, but after few hours (4-5)
I have again 60% or more packet loss! Where is a problem? Maybe serial
driver is buggy?
