Searching for related messages on linux-kernel@, I found the following
message (part of a larger thread):


which leads to the following patch, applied to 2.6.17-rc5:

    [PATCH] sky2: fix jumbo packet support
    The truncate threshold calculation to prevent receiver from getting stuck
    was incorrect, and it didn't take into account the upper limit on bits
    in the register so the jumbo packet support was broken.

Could this be related to the problem some people are having with the
sky2 driver here?

(hope I'm not steping into someone elses toes here :) )
