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%
