    Is it proven that the number of ACKs actually cause bandwidth problems?
    I found Volanomark to exercise the scheduler more than anything else,
    so maybe the slowdown, while triggered by an increased number of ACKs,
    is caused by something else entirely.

    Walks like a duck. Quacks like a duck. Must be a chicken.
