Should the "rx-users" setting be "rx-usecs"? It would be nice if
some of these cards actually timestamped the frames when received
and then the timestamp provided by SO_TIMESTAMP or similar could
be corrected. It seems only a few cards can do this though.

(On FreeBSD these interrupt mitigation techniques should be tweakable
using the sysctls under the dev.em sysctl tree.)
