Since no fields are moved in the structure, merely flattened, I suspect any degradation must come from having the l2_len and l3_len bit fields split out. I'll do up a v3 with a union to allow them to be assigned simultaneously and see if it helps things. Fast-path is unaffected in my tests.\n\n/Bruce",
