What i recall is 64 was a good number and thats why we had it as default.
I cant remember who changed the value to 16(Robert?), but it does seem to
be a good value as well. If that was the only driver and it had a lot of
packets, it would still get to use all the 300 packets in the budget; it
will just have to do it in 300/16 times ..

Is there any way to influence how often the poll loop gets run?

I'll have a patch to set the weight via IOCTL soon....

Thanks,
Ben
