Internal testing with netperf - network performance between two
machines with 10Gb Intel NICs running 24 instances of the netperf tool
in parallel (to utilize all CPU cores) - shows a roughly 20%
performance degradation.  Bi-section showed the offending commit to be
this patch: commit a86760664f4 ("PCI/MSI: Export all remapped MSIs to
sysfs attributes").
