and there are several devices using IRQ 19. All of them have
widely-used drivers that are unlikely to have a major bug in interrupt
management. I'll have to think about this.

I say we take off; nuke the site from orbit. It's the only way to be sure.

Default Bug#637122: general: Realtek RTL8111 with r8169 module causes kernel panic on large packets

I figured I'd give this an update: I recently downloaded and installed the
r8168 module from realtek after investigating a different issue involving
network transmission speeds and it solved both issues (also, I can actually
set the MTU to 9000 now). I'll admit to there being a gap in my
understanding here: is there a reason why the r8168 isn't chosen for my set
of hardware? It looks like it isn't included in Debian at all. It's a wonder
I've been running the wrong module all this time!


The full identifier of my ethernet card in lspci is:
02:00.0 Ethernet controller: Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd. RTL8111/8168B
PCI Express Gigabit Ethernet controller (rev 03)

[...]

It's not the wrong module. If it didn't support your hardware then it
wouldn't do anything at all.

When Realtek started making chips in the RTL81xx family that attached
to the PCI Express (rather than classic PCI) bus they branched the
driver, with r8169 supporting the old chips and r8168 the new. But
the drivers have a lot of common code. In mainline Linux, support for
the new chips was added to r8169 instead.

All that said, r8168 probably has some fixes that mainline r8169 does
not (yet).
