Subject: [net/loopback] +46% netperf.Throughput_Mbps

Hi Eric,

Just FYI, we do measured +46.4% performance boost in netperf
TCP_SENDFILE tests on an atom server for commit:

commit 0cf833aefaa85bbfce3ff70485e5534e09254773

    net: loopback: set default mtu to 64K
    
    loopback current mtu of 16436 bytes allows no more than 3 MSS TCP
    segments per frame, or 48 Kbytes. Changing mtu to 64K allows TCP
    stack to build large frames and significantly reduces stack overhead.
    
    Performance boost on bulk TCP transferts can be up to 30 %, partly
    because we now have one ACK message for two 64KB segments, and a lower
    probability of hitting /proc/sys/net/ipv4/tcp_reordering default limit.
