Since the rewrites in 26980/26981, I've been noticing some instability issues with the network stack, especially when larger amounts of data are involved. For instance, copying a few hundred megabytes of data via scp is guaranteed to at some point terminate the connection with the following message from sshd:
Disconnecting: Corrupted MAC on input.
After something along those lines has happened at least once, connections seem to destabilize much more quickly afterwards, for instance I see Vision's network threads randomly go dead. I'm not sure what information would be most useful with respect to debugging at this point though.
