Mon Jul 16 It complains that TSC is unstable, right after tg3 breaks. The reason I am asking because I’ve tested the bug on both 32 and 64 bit systems, so I just dont see how disabling highdma on a 32bit system would resolve the issue.

If you want to take a deeper look, there are a few logs here. Joseph Salisbury jsalisbury wrote on Here is the procedure to replicate the issue because it is hard to replicate it under moderate network load.
The last session took about one or two weeks, working full time, on an isolated network.
Nothing changed, the bug is still in here. I used iperf instead of scp though. The tg3 module crashes in a few seconds right after opening the user session e. It boots and brings up tg3, the Ethernet link is working and the module seems stable.

When this happens, only a reboot would be able to fix it. They show mostly the same messages, to me. If this bug is fixed in the mainline kernel, please add the following tag ‘kernel- fixed-upstream’.
I’ve also reported the work-around to Broadcom dev team and suggested a patch to the tg3 driver to disable highdma. This kernel works on the HP box i have. Please check it out: Download full text 6. With my old “fast ethernet” switch, the problem alwasy happens.
Patch is not merged yet in the main linux branch, until and including 4.
I also checked that this patch is not yet merged into the latest vanilla stable kernel, version 4. Will collect logs to report this properly soon, in a few hours.

Below is a simple patch to the tigon device driver if you prefer not to use the udev rule solution. FTTH user here, no ethernet connection after highload speedtest or you tubelike others users i had to reboot. It’s lurking anywhere between the binary blob the firmwarethe kernel driver, the hardware or any tricky combination of these. The dmesg output for this working kernel is attached also, because maybe it might help you to sort out what’s different from one kernel to the other.
