i think i experience the same problem with 3.18-rc2 on my mx28 board. I get
strange warnings about unexpected bytes from ping on my mx28 board and ping to
my mx28 board fails because of no response.

After applying the complete patch series these problems disappear. I'm looking
forward to see V4.

Thanks Stefan
