Interesting networking talk

Apparently Van Jacobson just gave a talk at linux.conf.au, in which  
he talked about speeding up Linux networking by streamlining the data  
path from network card to userspace.  It's pretty interesting that  
moving the network stack /out/ of the kernel gave a huge performance  
increase.  Definitely worth looking at for anyone interested in high- 
performance networking and OS kernels.

The slides from the talk are here: http://www.lemis.com/grog/

And there's a good summary here (search for Net Channels): http://
