I think there are generally 2 possibilities. The chip can accept the
large packet and let the driver drop it, or the chip can drop the
large packet. You're probably looking at the latter.
You need to find the docs for the chipset on your card and see
if there is a register to set the maximum packet size. If so,
you need to add some code to the driver to increase this value (
in dc_init() I suppose). It's not too difficult.
Either that, or wait for someone else to come out with a patch.
You don't need to alter the MTU or anything else. I just performed
this modification on the xl driver a couple days ago, and it works
