I'm using a Libre Computer Renegade with RK3328 SoC(maybe it's a board
specific thing?)
I'm using txpbl as from what I can gather, the rx has no issues, no
need to change it.

When it comes to rx,
running the server (iperf3 -s) on the Renegade and iperf3 -c
<renegade_ip> on my laptop,
I get about 940 Mbps. It's always been like that, satisfactory.

When it comes to tx (the one all the fuss is about)
I eventually find that just with snps,txpbl = <0x21>, and no other pbl
thing set I get about 905 Mbps on average sent to my laptop, now
running the iperf3 server.

I must say I haven't touched the MTUs but I never needed to as the
issue presented itself in normal usage. Simple iperf tests will fail
after same kilobytes if no tweaks are applied.
