Setting netdev_max_backlog doesn't seem to have any effect for me either.

I get a similar latency when I try to reproduce your result above, ~612
usec. However, my trace is very different than yours:

In fact most any network activity, with the POSSIBLE exception of
already open connections, seem to be able to trigger higher latencies.
As you can see here:
