Please provide an analysis when you get the results. IOW, explain why
one vs the other get different results.

I havent tested with iperf in a while.

This variable should be set during xmit path shutdown(netif_stop),
wakeup(netif_wake) and ->hard_end_xmit(). In the case of the first

the driver deems to be available space on the ring.

I will post the driver howto later today.
