Doing simple iperf test on new opteron with tg3 against existing Xeon
system.  I am seeing something wierd, the connection hangs right away.
Is this a TSO bug.
Sender: BK latest (2.6.9-rc3) Tg3 (XX.YY.250.3)
Receiver: BK + netdev(jeffm) + dave's latest e100 (XX.YY.1.73)

Both machines are directly connected with a netgear 100mbit switch.


IT ISN'T A NETWORK PROBLEM.  The problem is that iperf uses posix
pthread mutex's to sychronize and it looks like a futex bug.

might not be a futex bug - check to see if iperf does
any writes, fflushes, etc, in a signal handler - i.e.
that its signal handling is thread-safe. glibc now
makes it a fatal bug..

thanks,
