    RPS is not good for you because the generic rxhash computation will
    spread messages for UDP port XX on many different cpus (because rxhash
    computation takes into account the complete tuple (src ip, dst ip, src
    port, dst port), not only dst port.

    It would be better for your workload to only hash dst port, to avoid
    false sharing on socket structure.

    I guess we could extend rxhash computation to use a pluggable BPF
    filter, now we can have fast filters.
