On the FireBee, it didn't work at all...
And many thanks, Peter, it was exactly the right clue!

There was a bug in the FEC driver (FireBee only):
The size of the outgoing packets was not correctly calculated.
For an unknown reason, it only affected the fragmented IP packets.

I'm going to provide a patch for the FEC driver.
It fixes:
- ping with packet size > 1500
- the NFS server

Now I can run the NFS server on my FireBee, and mount it from Linux using UDP. It works fine, fast, and reliably :D

BTW, it does not fix the FireBee NFS client. That's another story.
