1) Are you using SLUB, SLAB, or SLOB ?

2) Problem with MTU=9000 is that frames span several 4K pages.

Maybe some versions of r8169 hardware have problems with that ...

3) We could check in xmit handler if the frames are correct before
sending them.  (Adding a trace of ICMP frames, and check if the payload
is all 0x42 filler or not)
