Description

Rather than setting flow control thresholds to hard coded values DEFAULT_FCRTH & DEFAULT_FCRTL those values should be calculated based on delay value bit times and receive buffer size. This is important to flow control so that proper pause frames are sent and to minimize dropped packets.
