could someone familiar with the hme driver tell me how to convince it to
receive >1500 bytes frames ? This is for 802.1q support. I tried pocking a bit
around but didn't find anything obvious. The frame is dropped without counters
being incremented.
Somethimes I get:
hme1: status=400<MAXPKTERR>
this seems related to transmit.
I tried ignoring MAXPKTERR but this didn't help (after this even ping didn't
When a large frame is received it's silently dropped.
