Today I updated kernel & system on one of my machines (FreeBSD
7.0). After the update which ran absolutely smooth I'm seeing spurious
messages both on the console and in /var/log/messages like the

no toe capability on 0xc2e66400

Grep-ing through the sources I found the above message to come from
/usr/src/sys/netinet/tcp_offload.c. As far as I understand this has
something to do with TcpOffloadEngine.

Please note that this is a box several years old (2GHz P4) with three
Intel FXP FastEthernet-cards.

So here are my questions:

o) Has anybody else seen the above messages?

Yes, same here on a VIA motherboard with a vr interface.

o) Can they safely be ignored?

Looks like it. They're debug messages that shouldn't still be in there. They were removed in version 1.2 but then reappeared in


Thanks for locating the source of the problem. I entered a PR (#126138) but forgot to put in a pointer to your message--and now can't, since the PR database claims #126138 doesn't exist. I'll try again later.
