Turns off all netfilter options except tables, etc.

Since 2.6.22.19-cfs-v24.1 and 2.6.23.17-cfs-v24.1 schedulers are
identical, and these are essentially identical with 2.6.24.7, what I
read from numbers below is that cfs in 2.6.23 was somewhat less than
wonderful for either netperf or tbench, Something happened somewhere
other than the scheduler at 23->24 which cost us some performance, and
another something happened at 26->27. I'll likely go looking again..
and likely regret it again ;-)

Math ain't free is part of it, though apparently not much. For me,
tbench regression 22->27 is ~10%, and netperf regression is ~16%.

Weight/asym changes cost ~3%. Mysql+oltp agrees. Preempt happy loads
lose a bit, preempt haters gain a bit. Performance shift.
