We should be getting some benefit on the receive path, where the
checksum is normally forced to happen independent of a copy. Having this
offloaded to hardware should produce some measureable gain.

Bin: The numbers you're seeing are terrible anyway. You should be seeing
890Mb/s for external traffic. What kind of machine is this on?
