   can we have the TCP retransmit side take a performance hit if it needs to
   realign buffers?
You don't understand, the person who mangles the packet
must make the copy, not the person not doing the packet

...we probably won't be using ppc64 and e1000 cards, yes, I agree

Anton, go to the local computer store and pick up some tg3
