The patch effectively makes the performance of TCP buffering go from O(N) to O(C), or to constant time, independent of the size of the list to traverse. The NetBSD performance enhancements are astounding, hopefully they will be observed on OpenBSD with this patch, as well. Someone needs to benchmark this.
If you're feeling up to the game, feel free to port Thorpe's zero copy TCP patches to OpenBSD.
