Subject: Re: [REGRESSION] 2.6.24-rc7: e1000: Detected Tx Unit Hang

applied to 2.6.24-rc7-git2
Have messages
Also have regression after apply patch.
System may do above 800mbs traffic before patch. After its "exit polling 
mode?" (4 CPU, 1 cpu get 100% si (process ksoftirqd/0), 3 CPU is IDLE)
After patch system was go to "exit polling mode" at above 600mbs.

Thanks.
