I tested this with Volanomark on dual-processor PII Xeon -- the
results were very bad:

Before: 5863 messages per second

124169 schedule                                  64.1369
 64663 _spin_unlock_irqrestore                  4041.4375
  7949 tcp_clean_rtx_queue                        6.5370
  6787 net_rx_action                             24.9522
 
After: 5569 messages per second

139417 schedule                                  72.0129
 82169 _spin_unlock_irqrestore                  5135.5625
  9949 tcp_clean_rtx_queue                        8.1817
