Ok, then i suppose we can conclude it is a bug on e1000 (holds tx_lock
on tx side and adapter queue lock on rx). Adding that lock will
certainly bring down the performance numbers on a send/recv profile.
The bizare thing is things run just fine even under the heavy tx/rx
traffic i was testing under. I guess i didnt hit hard enough.

cheers,
