    Exactly. Or if it's working for you already, the mainline (2.6.33-rc4)
    with the pskb_may_pull patch. And check for warnings from the latter.

    I'm not sure either, but until there is no crash it might be some
    minor bug or/and missing stat. Btw, you could probably try alternative
    test with ping from this overloaded box to the router and win7.

    Maybe, but you wrote earlier they had to fix something around this
    DMAR in the meantime, because it triggered much faster during your
    previous tests. So, I don't know why you assume this DMAR has to be
    correct this time.
