Thanks Michael for your fast answer


I tried this MSI disabling and yes, it now works.

16: 42726 128 105 106 89 89 145 152 IO-APIC-fasteoi uhci_hcd:usb1, eth0, eth1

But I now have same interrupt used on two NIC, so I cannot split the load on two CPUS, unless
using a smp_affinity with 2 CPUS on it. Not exactly what I wanted to do..

Do you know if BCM5715S (tg3 driver) have same problem ?
