Re: port-shark/57613: Abysmal network performance on shark

This could depend on your switch or the negotiated link.
Can you check ifconfig output and also error counters?

Well this is embarrassing. I took all the things you wanted and tested two separate network switches. The problem turns out that "mediaopt full-duplex" fubars everything. Don't even remember that. I briefly tested this with netbsd-9 before going to netbsd-10 and I can remember that network was pretty pants on that too. Unsure of when that full-duplex was added though. Removing full-duplex makes the net behave normally.

FTR there was zero in the error counters even when using full-duplex.

Perhaps it would be possible to turn off the possibility to enable full-duplex since it's so broken? (Other stuff connected to that switch runs fine full-duplex.)

The other problem that nfs-root hangs going multi-user turns out to be that /etc/rc.d/network flushes routes after setting (or not in this case) NIS/YP domain. Since this shark is on another subnet than the file server and the gateway the machine got from dhcpd got flushed things break. Setting flushroutes=NO in rc.conf fixes the problem but is that the intended way? After network_start_domainname() flushes the route we can never reach network_start_defaultroute() which comes later.

Anyway, sorry for the noise and please close this PR.
