Though it may be moot by now, I just ran some tests of my own with this
patch. This was on a dual 2.4 GHz Xeon booted with a UP kernel,
running iperf over an e1000 at a 1500 byte MTU. I measured idle CPU by
running a process which sits in a gettimeofday() loop. Numbers are CPU
utilization, all turned out +/- 1%.


No TSO:  86.6%
Old TSO: 61.0%
New TSO: 88.5%

Yeah, TSO Reloaded really stinks. :-)

Try the "Super TSO" patch I just posted instead.

Interesting timing. :) With the new patch I'm getting 78.0%.
