I had checked the bnx2 offical source code,
bnx2: MSI-X hang on 5709 NICs -> nic dead
is not apply yet.
I've verify previous proxmox kernel on same hardware, msi-x was working without problem (since 1 year).

Do you know witch broadcom model does not work with debian or redhat source kernel ?
rhel6 is pretty new, sound strange than it not support new hardware.
I have recent Dell servers,and broadcom cards( 5709) are working without problem with debian and redhat.
I see a new kernel-2.6.32-131.12.1.el6.src.rpm kernel, I'll try to build it to see if it's work on squeeze and lenny.

Aren't those already included in current RHEL6 kernel?

> 1. bnx2: Fix netpoll crash

And those apply to the original broadcom sources we use?
