I only have one board with a Armada XP here which has a loopback cable
between two ports. It gives me:

[  3] local 172.16.1.4 port 47002 connected with 172.16.1.0 port 5001
[ ID] Interval       Transfer     Bandwidth
[  3]  0.0-10.0 sec  1.27 GBytes  1.09 Gbits/sec

Still not 2.5Gbps, but at least twice the data rate you get, plus my
board has to handle both ends of the link.
