I saw that this was also in the devel tree so I updated my copy and yes the
printout is now right.

But "time dd if=/dev/zero of=testing bs=1024k count=100" on a nfs mouted fs
used to be 18s and is now 21s, a 16% slowdown not that I care much but still
quite a large difference.

And I have not tired this on my 10Mb port yet as I still have only one active
but as soon as they work again I test on 10Mb.
