    Subjectlinux-2.6.11-rc5: mysterious loss of tx
    Date
    Hi folks,

    My home box has onboard via-rhine NIC.

    Several days ago my father called me and said that
    it does not send anything (tcpdump shows only rx'ed pkts
    despite pings being attempted etc). I did not investigate
    then.

    Yesterday I've seen it myself. I bumped up ethtool msglvl.
    Looks like via-rhine's hard_start_xmit was not called at all
    from network core code! (I did not see debug printks from
    rhine's hard_stat_xmit routine)

    Whatever I tried (ifconfig down/up, reinit IP config from scratch),
    nothing helped. No tx whatsoever was attempted by kernel, it seems.

    Reboot 'fixed' things.

    It hever happened on the same hardware before I switched to rc5.
