Today I have been trying to use the UPC (just rate control) implemented
in the PCA200-E NIC. I simply changed the values in the driver to 

  tpd->rc_stream_desc.data_cells = 10;
  tpd->rc_stream_desc.empty_cells = 343;

to get an approximate rate of 10,000 cells per second, but it doesn't
work. Any ideas?

I guess the problem is in the size of the PDU. I changed the PDU size to
different values using the max_sdu QoS parameter, but it did not work
anyway. There is something even more strange: using a different PDU size
for transmission and reception (set by max_sdu) does not cause any
errors. I though that since the CRC is computed on different data, the
PDU would be discarded.

How can this happen? 
I also would like to know if it is possible to set the size of the AAL5
PDUs, and if not, what size is used by default?

Thank you in advance.
