Subject: SKY2 vs SK98LIN performance on 88E8053 MAC

We are observing severe IPv4 forwarding degradation 
when switching from sk98lin to sky2 driver. Setup:
plain kernel, 88E8053 Marvell Yukon2 MAC,
sk98lin is @revision coming from FC6, SKY2
driver from kernel, both drivers are in NAPI
Benchmarks are done using bidirectional traffic 
generated by IXIA, sending 256-byte packets. Observed 
packet throughput is almost 30% higher with sklin98
Ethernet flow control is turned off in SKY2 driver 
(hard-coded as off, we know about this problem).  
I also have oprofile records of the drivers in case 
anybody is interested.
Please share info if you know anything on SKY2
performance bottlenecks.
 Thanks in advance,
    Philip R.
