Comment 26 for bug 1447664

Having same same issue on HP EliteDesk 705 G3 Desktop Mini (W4V44AV)
Broadcom Corporation NetXtreme BCM5762 Gigabit Ethernet PCIe (rev 10) and tg3 module

Error is triggered after the link speed is set or negotiated to 100Mbps
Usually within 15sec of ping ower 100Mbps link
But but works ok with 1Gbps links.

Can be triggered by pluging to 100Mbps port, changin the switch port to 100Mbps or:
# ethtool -s eno1 speed 100 duplex full autoneg off

Netboot works until the tg3 module takes ower.
Windows works ok.
Tested:
- multiple cables, computers and switch vendors
- upgrading bios
- ethtool disable eee and hardware offload
- ubuntu 12.04 - 17.04
- new kernel linux-generic-hwe-16.04-edge Version: 4.11.0.14.22
- disable power management in bios
- disable power management with grup switches
- iommu=soft iommu=on iommu=off
- disable highdma

None of the workarounds that i found on Google worked for me.
