very interesting result - thanks!
it's worth noting that the rtl8139 has seen a continual stream of fixes
that have noticably improved its stability and performance. actually,
the same goes for 3c59x, tulip and eepro100 - it would be quite interesting
to see a comparison with modern kernels (2.4). especially because some
of these drivers (and gigE ones) are seeing a lot of attention just now
as a side-effect of the zero-copy effort.
it'll also be very interesting to see how the zero-copy stuff effects
