|Summary||0017149: issues with Broadcom BCM5709 network card and bonding driver|
|Description||during the upgrade to the kernel 754.28.1.el6 I noticed that my network card Broadcom BCM5709 doesn't work anymore when used with bonding driver.|
the bonded network card can apparently receive packets but it cannot transmit data.
the interface stats reports 0 sent packets and error count is very high.
not sure if it depends from the network card driver or the bonding driver, but since I noticed from changelog several changes for the bonding driver, I'm inclined for an issue with the latter.
reverting to kernel 754.27.1.el6 solves the issue.
|Steps To Reproduce||it may suffice to bond the 2 ports of the Broadcom BCM5709|
then ping some host
