Interesting.  I have never run across NetworkManager causing this sort of
problem, and would probably have investigated hardware and firmware level
issues like faulty cables, or misrouted MSI interrupts, or something.

When you have run into problems with NetworkManager causing dropped packets
and poor network response, what was the root cause?

Did NetworkManager just misprogram the card, causing duplex problems, or was
there something deeper at work?
