Default Bug#644906: linux-2.6: e1000e: upstream workaround for packet drop on 82579LM at 100Mbps

Package: linux-2.6
Source: linux-2.6
Version: 3.0.0-3
Severity: normal
Tags: patch

Many (but not all) devices including an Intel 82579LM NIC have a
hardware fault that results in packet loss at 100Mbps that is worked
around by the following recent patch:
http://patchwork.ozlabs.org/patch/109926/

More detail provided here:

https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/oneiric/+source/linux/+bug/870127
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=713315

It would be useful for this patch to be cherry picked for the kernel
for Wheezy as this fault exists on a large number of recent devices.


Thanks,

Terry
