r8169 counters, Intel Atom 230 (D945GCLF)
Afternoon,

We ran into a lot of issues with the Intel Atom (D945GCLF) boards
shortly after they were released, particularly to do with network
booting the systems with x86_64 kernel via PXE and TFTP.

These seem to be fixed very nicely in the latest 2.6.27-rc kernels!

However I've just spotted an odd issue:

eth0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 00:1C:C0:5F:DC:02
inet addr:89.16.177.251 Bcast:89.16.177.255 Mask:255.255.255.0
inet6 addr: fe80::21c:c0ff:fe5f:dc02/64 Scope:Link
UP BROADCAST RUNNING MULTICAST MTU:1500 Metric:1
RX packets:25218 errors:0 dropped:2758040992 overruns:0 frame:0
TX packets:23301 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0
collisions:0 txqueuelen:1000
RX bytes:18615148 (17.7 Mb) TX bytes:3597444 (3.4 Mb)
Interrupt:124

That box was literally just booted about 30 seconds previously, and
whilst the RX packets/bytes looks believable the 'dropped' counter is
totally out of this world.

Any ideas?

Cheers,
Alex
