Linux kernel 6.3 Intel Gigabit fix

Just a heads up that Linux kernel 6.3 has a fix for Interl Gigabit network cards with a particular chip.
Apparently the throughput has been throttled to 60% of maximum by a kernel regression in 2020.
Maybe this will fix some of the speed issues that have been reported on this forum.
Kernel 6.3 isn’t an LTS kernel, so will have to wait for later or a kernel backport.


This patch is also included in kernel 6.1.26

You can test this in “unstable” pakfire tree wich is currently on 6.1.27
