    Dropped packets are usually a side effect of the interrupt delay option
    in the e1000 driver. I choose 256 usec delay (default is 64) for all
    these tests, and usually there is a very small % of dropped packets,
    which usually shows up as 0.00%, since I only show 1/100's of a percent
    in that output. The other tests do have dropped packets, and I should
    change that script to have more significant digits to show that. I'm
    not sure why ext3 shows more than the others. Does ext3 have any spin
    locks with interrupts disabled?
