Ok - but absent the last patch, I think I still need the pskb_may_pull
patch... so it'd be pskb_may_pull and afpacket v3 and no DMAR.

Also - not sure if related, but there's still the odd tx side behavior
when RX is under load. That I CAN reproduce at will (yesterday's report
- no crash, but I confirmed that DHCPOFFER packets are being dropped
somewhere after wireshark sees them and before hitting the wire.

I am also wondering whether or not that testing I did yesterday set up
today's hang - perhaps those lost TX packets are corrupting something
that manifests worse later.
