== Known Issues
1. Mustang based boards must be on the most recent firmware version, otherwise the network may lose connectivity when using 4.5.0-19+ based kernels. Please ensure your hardware is running the most recent firmware available to avoid network issues.
2. Merlin based boards should be on the most recent firmware version, in order to take full advantage of recent kernel improvements.
3. Some ThunderX based boards have been reported to have MAC address inconsistency when using older firmware versions. Please make sure you have the most recent firmware applied to your hardware to avoid network issues.
