I've ordered a Pine64, and started using it with FreeBSD, however I very soon
found out, that the Gbit NIC has a serious flaw: it's unstable in gbit mode,
however it's mostly stable on 100base-TX.

The Pine64 guys told me to check the pine64 and armbian forums regarding it,
here are some threads about it:

And DamnHippi found the following very useful resources on the bug as well:

Theard starts here: https://lkml.org/lkml/2017/8/22/9

Also, to make it more tricky, not all Pine64 boards are having this issue.

I hope these resources help fixing it.


PS: I'm reachable on freenode/EFNet as phx, if any testing is needed, or access
to a buggy board.
