Me wonders why people ask for 40 byte packets at linerate if the mtu is
got me... although I could fabricate a rational.
40 byte packets @ 40Gig is a wonder to contemplate.
the whole ATM argument (53byte "cells" over 100Meg)
being an egregious overhead expense for segmentation/
reassembly is amplified here.
