[Bug 1014350] Re: WARNING: at /build/buildd/linux-3.2.0/net/core/dev.c:1960 skb_gso_segment+0x341/0x3b0()



Please, ignore the following content from my previous post:

BTW, all my KVM Guests running behind this bnx2 NIC, have poor network performance. For example:

* From client-x to host: iperf shows ~900Mbits/s
* From client-x to guest-1 (ubuntu): iperf shows ~150Mbits/s
* From client-x to guest-2 (pfsense - e1000): iperf shows ~200Mbits/s
* From client-x to guest-2 (pfsense - virtio): iperf shows ~120MBtis/s

So, I starting to think that the bnx2 drivers for Linux is crap.

What do you guys think?!

Simple because it is not related to the topic and I'm doing more tests,
ubuntu guest is okay now, only pfsense guest still have poor network
performance and triggers the "bnx2" error on kern.log at host (every
single click on pfsense's webgui, triggers this error on host!). Sorry
about the buzz...
