	When working with 100Mbit interfaces change 
HZ = 100 to HZ = 1024 in param.h (include/asm-i386/param.h for x86
platforms).  A 10ms clock is not fine grained enough for 100Mbit
interfaces, ~ 1ms works much better.

As folks might have suspected, not much survives except roaches, 
and they don't carry large enough packets fast enough...
