The Linux networking stack isn't broken. The people who take care
of the stack know what they're doing & do good work. Based on all
the measurements I'm aware of, Linux has the fastest & most
complete stack of any OS.

To do this stuff right you want networking experts (not UNIX
interface standards experts) to come up with how to do things,
because folks like POSIX are going to make a rocking implementation
next to impossible.
Only folks like Van Jacobson can take us out of the myopic view we
currently have of how networking receive is done.
