First, please use plain text attachments when posting patches.

Second, please use netdev@vger.kernel.org for reaching the
networking developers. linux-net is for user questions only.

Lastly, others have hit this issue before, and config options
and kernel command line options are prone to failure and
hard for casual users to discover. For one example thread
on this topic see:

http://marc.info/?l=linux-netdev&m=126319430325919&w=2

Better is just to change the defaults to higher values and
I'd like to hear some suggestions from people hitting this issue.

Thanks.
