Hello

The maximum throughput I have between the two ethernet ports of a net4521
is 12.8 Mb/s. At that load, the machine spends 95% of the time handling
interrupts. 

Is this a software bug or a hardware limitation? The machine runs NetBSD
2.0RC4 (ethernet interface are handled by the sip driver), both interfaces
are at 100 Mb/s full-duplex
