it more difficult than I expected.
for one, the kernel date was missleading, the actual source update is the key, so
the window of changes is now 28/July to 19/August. I have the diffs, but nothing
yet seems relevant.

on the other hand, I tried NFS/TCP, and there things seem ok, ie the 'good' and the 'bad'
give the same throughput, which seem to point to UDP changes ...
