Hello Uwe,

I am also running an Armada 370 ReadyNAS, though with a much older
kernel (4.4.x). It is working fine for me, but checking the kernel
logs, I in fact also have the same issue:

[4141806.620510] mvneta d0070000.ethernet eth0: bad rx status 0f830000 (overrun error), size=1344

I think I do remember seeing reports about this, but I don't remember
if it ended up being fixed (and what we're seeing is some other
problem), or if it's still the same issue. It's been a long time I
looked into mvneta, unfortunately.

Best regards,
