Okay, here goes 2.5.71 + this patch:

60.0049 seconds passed, avg forwarding rate: 160190.859 pps
60.0085 seconds passed, avg forwarding rate: 157118.708 pps
60.0046 seconds passed, avg forwarding rate: 157211.097 pps
60.0073 seconds passed, avg forwarding rate: 157557.710 pps

...Looks like a tad worse than with your patch, but not by much. 
Forwarding rate is still pretty crappy for an Opteron.  Will fiddle
a bit more tonight to see what I can do.
