SubjectRe: Network performance - iperf
Looks like a lot of time spent in tcp_collapse(). I think there is assumption that the memcpys 
involved in collapsing lead to better throughput than packet retransmit, which on our platforms
may not be the case. If so is there a way to tune when tcp_collapse gets invoked? I haven't
seen one.
