Subject[PATCH]: spidernet poor network performance
From

Andrew,

Please apply.

--linas


This patch corrects a problem seen on later kernels running
the NetPIPE application. Specifically, NetPIPE would begin
running very slowly at the 1533 packet size. It was
determined that Spidernet slowed with an idle DMA
engine.
