very interesting result - thanks!

it's worth noting that the rtl8139 has seen a continual stream of fixes
that have noticably improved its stability and performance.  actually,
the same goes for 3c59x, tulip and eepro100 - it would be quite interesting
to see a comparison with modern kernels (2.4).  especially because some 
of these drivers (and gigE ones) are seeing a lot of attention just now
as a side-effect of the zero-copy effort.

it'll also be very interesting to see how the zero-copy stuff effects
cluster performance...

regards, mark hahn.
