== 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.
