The server in the first test was a Debian (lenny?) server running a
2.4.32 kernel with nfs-kernel-server 1:1.0.6-3.1. The latest test was
done with Debian/etch as server with 2.6.18-6-686 and nfs-common
In the latest test I didn't put any of the machines back to 1Gbit but
for host2 and host3 read performance over UDP is considerably slower
than over TCP (both hosts have Gbit interfaces but are patched at
