    The working board has a different version of the Marvell chip:

    $ grep Marvell working-MB
    04:00.0 Ethernet controller: Marvell Technology Group Ltd. 88E8056 PCI-E Gigabit Ethernet Controller (rev 14)
    $ grep Marvell broken-MB
    04:00.0 Ethernet controller: Marvell Technology Group Ltd. 88E8056 PCI-E Gigabit Ethernet Controller (rev 12)

    Not sure if that completely explains the problem because the broken chip on my
    system is:
    06:00.0 Ethernet controller: Marvell Technology Group Ltd. 88E8056 PCI-E Gigabit Ethernet Controller (rev 14)

    I don't know what the differences are between versions.
