A summary of all tests is (REFERENCE being a freebsd6 box on same
LAN against same server running netserver; it's pretty clear that
the *STREAM tests perform OK and the *RR test poor to very poor) :

TCP_STREAM
              Throughput
              10^6bits/sec

REFERENCE     349.57
fc10-x64      138.48


UDP_STREAM
              Throughput
              10^6bits/sec

REFERENCE     388.45
fc10-x64      365.10


TCP_RR
              Trans.
              Rate
              per sec

REFERENCE     9801.58
fc10-x64        86.87


TCP_CRR
              Trans.
              Rate
              per sec

REFERENCE     4520.98
fc10-x64         5.60


UDP_RR
              Trans.
              Rate
              per sec

REFERENCE     9473.20
