I'm going to go ahead and say this is where my issue and the op's issue 
begin to branch apart from one another. He's seeing this on all incoming 
data, whereas i am only seeing it on ssl data and not on sun4v.

At this point i would say data from my issue is only going to cloud this 
issue as they seem to be two completely different issues revolving 
around the same commit. If i come across any relevant data for x86_64 
ill be sure to post it if this isn't resolved by then, but for now i'm 
going to refrain from submitting anything sparc related.
