Hi, i've just compiled linux 2.2.10 for R3k and R4k. On my R4k systems
it runs fine, but on a R3k (3100) the network fails while mounting
the root FS. I get repeated "neighbour table overflow" errors, and
finally it gives up to mount NFS root, and panics. This is the
only system I've tried to netboot on a busy network. A 5000/260 on
a quiet network goes OK, as does a 5000/150 booting from disk.

I'll have to find out if this is CPU related, or just a bug in 2.2.10 for
DECStations (there are lots of changes in the ipv4 networking code between
2.2.1 and 2.2.10!).

Does anyone of you have similar experiences?

Regards,
Karel.
