That's strange.  The patch should only affect TX performance slightly
since we are just turning off SG for TX.  Please take an ethereal trace
to see what's happening and compare with a good trace.

I think this is the 5700, but please send me the tg3 output that
identifies the chip and the revision.  Something like this:

eth2: Tigon3 [partno(BCM95705) rev 3003 PHY(5705)] (PCI:66MHz:32-bit) 10/100/1000Base-T Ethernet 00:10:18:04:57:0d
eth2: RXcsums[1] LinkChgREG[0] MIirq[0] ASF[0] WireSpeed[0] TSOcap[1]
