Yes, it's clear that  some slow down can appear, but 100 ms is too much,
and this happens at 200 SYN packets in 2 minutes just as in my example.
On old servers where some tx/rx are missing in NIC card I don't see
such a situation even at more then 1000 SYN-packets per sec.

No, only LOG gives such a scheme.
