Yes, initrd gets around the problem. No I did not want to go through the effort of building one. 🙂
Just confirmed the onboard NIC is causing me some major issues. Here is my dumb samba backup copy test file, large 20GB+ data file from windows desktop to EspressoBin, over Gb/s networking, samaba, to old SSD. Same test to X86_64 NAS moves at 112MB/s:
92.4MB/s Intel Pro 1000 CT (I would bet cash I am disk constrained)
65.6MB/s mvneta (on-board)
Please let me know how else I can help.
