armel/imx51: Poor ethernet behavior with 2.6.28

Bug #348333 reported by Loïc Minier
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
linux (Ubuntu)
Fix Released

Bug Description


Since we moved to the 2.6.28 patch set from Freescale (FSL) for iMX51, I see poor network behavior on my Babbage board.

Using an USB ethernet adapter or going back to 2.6.26 + FSL patches fixes the issue.

This should preferably be addressed before release or as a stable update, but depends on the availability of a fix from upstream (FSL).
