FWIW I've given your fec-testing branch some testing on BD-SL-i.MX6
(Sabre Lite) with 3.16-rc2 (-rc1 has some issue with detecting the mmc).
 Mainly running glibc 'make check' with SSH, NFSv4, IPv4 on a gigabit
switch.  This workload wasn't exhibiting problems before your patches
and it does not appear to be regressed by them.

I wanted to test it because I've noticed hard-to-characterize sluggish
interactive response in SSH sessions on this system.  Like key echo
takes 0.2 seconds too long... sometimes.  I guess it could be anything,
but I haven't encountered it yet with your patches.
