Thanks for suggestion. I've just tried it, performance difference is indistinguishable.

Also, use the link0 option with your fxp cards if they support it.  See
the fxp(4) man page for more info.  Here is an example /etc/rc.conf entry:
ifconfig_fxp0="inet xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx netmask xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx link0"

Well, I'm aware of this feature. I'm just evaluating performance of RELENG_6 systems on uniprocessor i386 system, and (for now) it's significantly worse
than under RELENG_4. So I've used fxp just for comparison (and to rule out
possible specific regression in rl NIC driver), not for anything more
serious.
