Yes, looks related. 8193 also lacks the check of buffer availability before receiving packets. I can try this.

Comment 3 YangFeng 2011-06-24 06:11:12 UTC
In step 1, I start guest with 4 nics.
In step 3, launch 4 netperf client in host.  one netperf client per guest nic.

If the backport doesn't solve the problem, then we will reconsider the dev-ack+.
Thanks, Ronen.
