Description

This error is printed on each boot. I'm using a Realtek Ethernet card and on Linux the MTU is always set to 1500.

It's not just annoying but this bug also caused poor network performance on my system. On Linux, I could get into 11 Mb/s as the maximum but I found I could only get to 1.6 Mb/s maximum on Illumos.

I wanted to use Illumos to host Linux VMs but currently I can't because the network speed is too bad.

Please have a look at this issue. Thanks.
