When you say yourv'e tryed all the kernels after 2.6.8 ..., in what way ?
Source compiles of mainline kernels, and/or with patch sets applied, if so ... which sets. All the distros will use different patches. There may be some FC patch set issue happening that hasn't been satisfied with the later kernels.
I would think you would need to find out just what patches FC is using in their default kernel, then decide on whether you need to follow that line.
I don't think there has been much actual change in the underlying networking support though. Most of the changes have been with regard to memory management and schedualing issues. And just plain code cleanups/bug fixs.
If you were just compiling with your existing saved '.config', that is, not having gone through a reconfig, jumping off with the earlier one ... you may have accidently turned something off, involving whats implemented as a module, and whats built in etc. Possibly that, and the patch issue will fix it.
