I meant it continuously regresses from .23 including 26-27 timeframe.
There were at least two changes in 26-27 which caused tbench regression
in this particular time interval. One of them enabled TSO over loopback
by default, so one can turn it off via ethtools or this patch:
http://marc.info/?l=linux-netdev&m=122263663631600&w=2

another (hopefully) one I'm trying to find out, which is a bit complex
and slow, since e1000 driver changes in the middle of the 26-27
timeframe does not allow my testing machines to boot.

So, there is a regression (partially resolved), but it is only part of
the problem.
