For example, you could try disabling the scatter-gather or tx-cum
via ethtool and seeing if there is some benefit; so we could image
some problem on your HW or SYNP MAC integration for checksumming
on tx side.
disabling the following:
ethtool -K eth0 sg off
ethtool -K eth0 tx off
does not prevent the network communication going down..
Also you could check the AXI tuning and PBL value. To be honest
(thinking about your problem) I can actually suspect some related
problem on bus setup. So I suggest you to play with these value
(better if you ask for having values from HW validation on your side).
Otherwise the stmmac uses a default that cannot be good for your
platform. For example, sometime I have seen that PBL is better if
reduced to 8 instead of 32 and w/o 4xPBL...
how can I set those values ?
thanks for your time,
take a look at Documentation/devicetree/bindings/net/stmmac.txt
