Well, we already did experiments.

- DNS servers are using kernel bypass.
  Damn faster than SO_REUSEPORT on UDP anyway (Ying Cai is working on
this problem, since QUIC does not yet use kernel bypass and wants

- Disable RFS for non TCP flows.

- Or have separate hash tables for TCP/UDP (slightly same effect, as UDP
table is mostly empty in our case)

Disabling RFS is the on/off behavior you seem to push, nice for
