It's too depressing - so i came back here for a break ;->
I cant even stand Don Cherry today.

As a side note: You will have to do a lot of surgery to the current code
to make tx run on multi CPUs. It needs some experimenting to get right.
And i am begining to like Herberts changes ;->
I am not against multi-rings; iam just suggesting an alternative
approach which is less disruptive.

In regards to the tx lock - my thinking is resolving that via tx
batching. You amortize the lock over multiple packets. There may be
value in fine grained locking - i need to think about it. A small
extension to the batching patches will provide the change i am
proposing.

cheers,
jamal
