    + help
    + NAPI is a new driver API designed to reduce CPU and interrupt load
    + when the driver is receiving lots of packets from the card. It is
    + still somewhat experimental and thus not yet enabled by default.

    + If your estimated Rx load is 10kpps or more, or if the card will be
    + deployed on potentially unfriendly networks (e.g. in a firewall),
    + then say Y here.
    + See <file:Documentation/networking/NAPI_HOWTO.txt> for more
    + information.
    + If in doubt, say N.
