I cvsupped 3 PCs with the same configuration yesterday to 2.2.8-STABLE. (All
3 boxes have
identical hardware)

They'd been running 2.2.8 for 45 days, thought it was time for an upgrade.
On 2 of them I recompiled the kernel and rebooted. The 3rd I just did a make
but did not reconfig the kernel or reboot yet.

Today those 2 newly updated boxes have been slow. The ping time for them on
a little used
100Mbs network is 38ms. By contrast the 3rd pc that I did not rebuild the
is <10ms. I didn't change the configurations at all. All 3 machines have the
exact same
configuration. Also, the dmesg are the same as ever.

Did any changes for the SMC Tx network card occur in the last 45 days or so?
Any other idea what new features would be slowing things down?
At best I'm only getting 35 kb/sec transfers our of those machines.
