Yes, probably, as we did find some clue related with the tcp_r/wmem.

Here is the regression we found:
On some machines, we found there is about 10% resgression of netperf
TCP-64K loopback test between 3.2 and 3.3-rc1. The exact test is:
./netperf -t TCP_STREAM -l 60 -H 127.0.0.1 -i 50,3 -I 99,5 -- -s 32768 -S 32768 -m 4096


The test machine is a 2 socket Quad Core Core 2 Duo server(2.66GHz) with
8 GB RAM. Following are the debug info (ifconfig/netstat -s/tcp_rwmem)
before and after the test:

The most obvious differences I can see are:
1) 311 GB vs 241 GB from ifconfig
2) the difference of the tcp_r/wmem

Thanks,
Feng
