Yes, sometimes there aren't even 5 packets a second, but also it slows down.
So I don't think this is the reason.

I have also found that:
1. rx overruns is increasing.
2. rx_queue_drop_packet_count is increasing.
# ethtool -S eth0 | grep drop
     tx_dropped: 0
     rx_queue_drop_packet_count: 1260743751
     dropped_smbus: 0
     rx_queue_0_drops: 0
     rx_queue_1_drops: 0
     rx_queue_2_drops: 0
     rx_queue_3_drops: 0

3. By sending SYN-packets by hping, RST packet doesn't send, but I don't know may 
be it is just some feature in 2.6.32.
newbox # hping -c 1 -S -p 80 111.111.111.111
HPING 111.111.111.111 (eth0 111.111.111.111): S set, 40 headers + 0 data bytes
len=46 ip=111.111.111.111 ttl=58 DF id=11471 sport=80 flags=SA seq=0 win=65535 rtt=99.0 ms

--- 111.111.111.111 hping statistic ---

As a result I got doubles:
DUP! len=46 ip=111.111.111.111 ttl=58 DF id=27454 sport=80 flags=SA seq=0 win=65535 rtt=3137.8 ms

Example of another TCP-session from 2.6.28 kernel:
oldbox # hping -c 1 -S -p 80 111.111.111.111
HPING 111.111.111.111 (eth0 111.111.111.111): S set, 40 headers + 0 data bytes
len=46 ip=111.111.111.111 ttl=58 DF id=53180 sport=80 flags=SA seq=0 win=65535 rtt=2.9 ms

--- 111.111.111.111 hping statistic ---
1 packets tramitted, 1 packets received, 0% packet loss
round-trip min/avg/max = 2.9/2.9/2.9 ms
