Description (partial)

  Under very specific circumstances, GE SPA (5x1GE, 8x1GE, 10x1GE) may get
 latched into a state where it corrupts all egress traffic. Ingress traffic is
 not impacted. Packets transmitted have a corrupted MAC header. The frame is
 prepended with 16 bytes from a previous frame. Due to the corrupted MAC header,
 the next hop will  drop the frame because it's not its destination MAC address
 or because  it's an unknown layer 2 ethertype when the frame is processed
 because it has a multicast MAC address (the destination MAC address is random
 as this depends on the pattern in the previous frame).
 Please contact your technical representative for more details of the specific
   Following a very short loss-of-signal period, with signal restoration within
   less than 10msec, this issue can occasionally be observed. As this is SPA
 dependant, both CRS-1 & C12K platforms are impacted.
