roger i am CCing you because
a) i think the problems are via-rhines fault in 2.6.16
b) this software reproducibly triggers something have not seen before

i need people who test the new fragmentation code in netjack-0.12.
i think i am seeing kernel problems, because there are patches going on
for the via-rhine driver.

it looks like the huge packet load triggers some sort of bug in the
via-rhine network driver. Because after using netjack for some seconds,
the link is broken. (this is reproducible with 2.6.16)

"ifconfig eth0 down; ifconfig eth0 up" fixes it again.

i dont think that the results i am getting are reliable. So i am asking
you to test it.

please check out

compile as usual with:

 bash# scons jack_source_dir=<jack_source>

then on the master with normal jackd running:

 bash# jacknet_client -p <other_machine> -P 24 -C 24

on the <other_machine>

 bash# jackd -R -d net -C 24 -P 24

please note that -r and -p on jackd -d net are no more needed and

i would also be interested in OSX results of the old netjack-0.11
for OSX compilation add "with-alsa=0"
