Subject: Re: e1000 performance issue in 4 simultaneous links

Sorry. that i interfere in this subject.

Do you recommend CONFIG_IRQBALANCE to be enabled?

If it is enabled - irq's not jumping nonstop over processors. softirqd 
changing this behavior.
If it is disabled, irq's distributed over each processor, and in loaded 
systems it seems harmful. 
I work a little yesterday with server with CONFIG_IRQBALANCE=no, 160kpps load.
It was packetloss-ing, till i set smp_affinity.

Maybe it is useful to put more info in Kconfig, since it is very important 
for performance option.
