Strange, in my profile, eth_type_trans is not in the top 20
Maybe an alignment problem ?
Oh, I understand, you hit the netdevice->last_rx update probblem, already corrected on net-next-2.6

> 1.673249 __inet_lookup_established
TCP established/timewait table is now RCUified (for linux-2.6.29), this one
should go down in profiles.

> 1.469183 tcp_current_mss
Yes there is a divide that might be expensive. discussion on netdev.
