[Intel-wired-lan] Fragmented UDP packets trigger rx_missed_errors on 82599EB

Hi

While investigating a upper level network issue, I found out the root cause may be triggered
by packet loss at NIC level, showed by rx_missed_errors.

kernel: linux-2.6.32-358.el6.x86_64
server: iperf -s -B 192.168.5.1 -u
client: iperf -c 192.168.5.1 -u -b 10G -i 1 -t 1000 -P 12 -l 3k
Use -l to specify buffers large than MTU to create fragmented IP packets.

1. Tune rx ring from 512 to max 4096 does help for single flow, but still got great rx_missed_errors from multiple flows.
2. Using latest net-next 4.0.0-rc4 shows the same effect.
3. Got 9.4Gbits/sec even though rx_missed_errors shows NIC level packets drop.

rx_missed_errors value comes from RXMPC, where 82599 data sheet 8.2.3.5.1 says:
"Missed packet interrupt is activated for each received packet that overflows the Rx
packet buffer (overrun).
he packet is dropped and also increments the associated RXMPC[n] counter."

I'm not sure it means my env is mis-configured or anything I'm missing obviously.
Any hints?

Attached several logs as below.
