Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 804870
Dropping instead of sending the truncated packets for 8139/e1000
Last modified: 2012-07-23 03:18:46 EDT
Description of problem:
After fix for bz781920 and bz772080, we send truncated packets when transmission buffer overrun (e1000/8139), we'd better drop the truncated packets as sending the partial packets were meaningless.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
- This is mostly an optimization issue for the non-recommended emulated NICs
- Not reported by the field.
