I've now used this one:

# script provided by intel
/root/ eth2
ifconfig eth2 mtu 9000
ethtool -K eth2 ntuple on

irqbalance is off

But with the latest long term stable vanilla kernel 3.0.34.

# iperf -c HOST -t 60

works fine but with -d for using both directions i see around 9.8Gbit/s 
in one direction and only 300kb/s in the other direction.
