Our X520 are still stable except for one recent problem, 2.6.18-238.9.1
-> 2.6.18-238.12.1 broke it quite bad. With 238.12.1 our servers start
dropping all incomming packets after a while. Sanity can be
(temporarily restored with a "ethtool --negotiate ethX").

We are currently running a kernel that excludes:
linux-2.6-net-ixgbe-fix-for-82599-erratum-on-header-splitting.patch

since that's what seems to break our setup.
Has the bug been reported upstream?
Nope, due to: 1) no reproducer and 2) the "next" EL kernel will have a new
major version of the driver code making it quite pointless to invest
effort/time in the 2.x driver.

If more information surfaces (maybe in this thread) and/or the problem
persists with the 3.x driver then a bz will most likely be created.
To follow up on this, we can not reproduce the problem with the 3.x driver as
shipped with the 5.7 kernel.
