Subject: SKY2 vs SK98LIN performance on 88E8053 MAC

Hello!
  
We are observing severe IPv4 forwarding degradation 
when switching from sk98lin to sky2 driver. Setup:
plain 2.6.21.3 kernel, 88E8053 Marvell Yukon2 MAC,
sk98lin is @revision 8.41.2.3 coming from FC6, SKY2
driver from 2.6.21.3 kernel, both drivers are in NAPI
mode. 
 
Benchmarks are done using bidirectional traffic 
generated by IXIA, sending 256-byte packets. Observed 
packet throughput is almost 30% higher with sklin98
driver. 
 
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.
