The logs show that the duplicate ACKs are generated only by the
receiver. I suspect a bug in the driver, perhaps the ACK packet
is not being removed from the TX buffer ring. Examining the transmitted
packets should be enough to rule out a network stack problem. Is
there any debugging infrastructure I can use or do I just have to
hack in on my own?
