Yes this time you guessed wrong :-) Well maybe it's participating
to the issue.

It's 0cf833ae (net: loopback: set default mtu to 64K). And I could
reproduce it with 3.6 by setting loopback's MTU to 65536 by hand.
The trick is that once the MTU has been set to this large a value,
even when I set it back to 16kB the problem persists.

Now I'm retrying your other patch to see if it brings the 10GE back
to full speed.

Willy
