I've compiled a version of altboot with 8 receive descriptors and put it at:


The patch that I used is also there (has debugging hooks and multicast
filter setup, although the filter setup didn't do anything).  Looking at
this again, I wonder if the problem is that we don't invalidate the
receive descriptor if we receive a broadcast or multicast packet.  That
might mean that the chip thinks that it can't write to one or more of
the descriptors, and so it drops subsequent packets.  I'll try and set
up my DS207 to test that later in the week.
