    Except for some broken old Ethernet cards, your data seems to
    indicate that the default NFS block size should vary with the
    total amount of memory.

    4 MB --> 1 kB
    8 MB --> 2 kB
    16 MB --> 4 kB
    32 MB --> 8 kB

    There is a TCP/IP window size CONFIG_* option that might deserve
    similar treatment.
