You probably have NAPI and/or interrupt coalescing setting
enabled on one or both of the devices.
I have NAPI on my ethernet device, at least.
I will check for interrupt coalescing.
AFAIK, there is a skb_clone followed by a kfree in netif_receive_skb (the frame coming from eth0 to br0).
There is a jitter in this call of "freeing memory". I am looking at the path, in order to see why there is a clone.
