We have run v3.16 for about three months now, and many millions of ssh
connections on eight separate systems, both without and with your network
patches. Our conclusion is that the patches clearly reduce the number of
network timeouts, and this is a great improvement. However, after a month
or so of uptime, the number of timeouts began to increase again, forcing us
to reboot the cards.

Best regards,
