R: performance information
Yes, SS4000E , based on EM-7210 card.
I got the kernel sources from www.kernel.org
I took version 188.8.131.52
then I patched it applying all the patches present in

for dma offload which should help getting things better (look to the
archives in this mailing-list. There should also be a bug open for the
