I have seen this pretty often on the SNIA64 machine too and I normally see
it on the way to multi-user ..
Are you saying that in 99% of the time when we get RX overflow, we can
reinit the driver and card? I was led to believe that we NEVER been able to
from an RX overflow situation.
The bottom line is that for SNIA64, this may be our only ethernet connection
we need to stabilize it. Are you actively engaged in this problem?
