What I did notice is that DEQNA's (and DELQA's) quite often drop packets
as soon as traffic gets heavier on the network. I tested this at the
raw-iron level (my own bare-metal test code) so that is not an OS-
driver issue. Under E11, I did not see this weirdness happen, so it
is a real-hardware thing.

Test boxes were various BA23's and BA123's with /23, /53, /73 and /83

This packet-dropping *may* cause network unreliability with traffic-
intensive ops such as copying files..
