    That actually supports the hypothesis doesn't it? The issue being the
    increased number of ACKs causing additional CPU overhead not saturating
    a NIC if any involved.

    One of these days I may have to try to look more closely at what volano
    does relative to netperf - I remember that someone tried very hard (was
    it you alexy?) to show a perfomance effect with netperf and it didn't do
