Two final comments - honest!
1) His test results for 10Gb/s ethernet were limited not by drivers, kernel or networking but by the memory bandwidth of the DDR333 chips in the system he was testing on!
He estimated that you would need at least DDR800 RAM to be able to have enough memory bandwidth to drive 10Gb/s at capacity.
2) VJ said anyone who tells you that you'll need a TOE is not telling the truth. OK - this was known already but could be handy for beating vendors around the head with.. :-)
