Thanks for your comments. 

FYI: I received a patch for tcp.c in the linux kernel which changes the
results dramatically. It does an unlock_kernel() before and a
lock_kernel() after the copy_and_checksum-Routine. This avoids the
serialization at this point.
As a result I got almost the same performance with 4 CPUs as with one
(which is reasonable, because the load is not enough for more than one CPU
-- the NT/IIS-results are similar).

Have a look at the thread in the linux-kernel list.

bye, juergen
