Thanks for the explanation! I certainly understand not wanting to put
non-standard hacks into the code. I imagine the number of people
affected by this is minimal (like I said, the overall
throughput/performance was fine). I'll just consider getting a PCI-E
em(4) in the future if the PCI bus begins to become a bottleneck for
me, which is unlikely as I have no raid in any of the connected
machines with gigE.
