Comment 5 Zhang Kexin 2009-07-29 04:02:17 EDT
Hi Ivan,

could you help test the rhel5.4 kernel for us? since finding a suitable machine is not easy.
patch goes in kernel 2.6.18-141, and latest rhel5.4 kernel is 2.6.18-160.

Comment 6 Ivan Vecera 2009-07-29 07:24:13 EDT
Hi Zhang,
I tested 5.4 kernel on all my machines with Realtek's NICs and the issue is solved for 5.4.
