I haven't noticed any slowdown here -- if anything, it's faster
with the timeout patches than it was the last time I checked the
request rate.  However, that's just large numbers of small files.
I tested it with a non-stop print CGI and a 78KB plain text file
as well, but only after the patch was made.  I haven't tested
the graceful restart patch yet.
