See the above message from David S. Miller <firstname.lastname@example.org> posted
in 1997. At the time Dave used that as his standard .sig because it was
really ground-breaking performance from Linux of >11MB/s TCP!
When I did tests I never got 11MB/s on my machines, that is because my
hardware was probably not as good, and because I used real-world applications
such as FTP rather than TCP benchmarks.
100/8 == 12.5. The wire is capable of 12.5MB/s, having a protocol do 11.26
isn't so strange.
