I run embedded devices with relatively weak processors on trusted networks and need every bit of TCP performance.

How do I disable this?

Oh, in the future a "knob may be added" ?

Gee, thanks for ignoring the embedded case (again).

I would suggest to do some benchmarking/profiling first. It seems very unlikely to me that the difference between md4 and md5 of only a few bytes calculated only once at the beginning of a connection would have a measurable impact.

Much less be a bottleneck.

But estimating performance is very hard so measure first the difference between the two algorithms.
