Is it slow with both scp and NFS? Or just NFS?

If just NFS then yes, I see this too. Transferring files 2.5->2.4 over NFS
is several times slower than 2.4->2.4 or 2.5->2.5. Quite repeatable.

That's a transmit underrun. The PCI/memory system was not able to feed data
into the NIC fast enough.

Please determine when this started. 2.5.64 would be a good kernel to test
because it doesn't have the PCI changes.
