Just ran a few tests, it appears the performance is about 5-10% higher.
Great work!

Two VMs running on the same host (non-WG iperf3 is 14 Gbit/sec), typical
results (upgrading receiver machine only):

Single core:

Before: 1.06 Gbit/sec
After: 1.13 Gbit/sec

Dual core:

Before: 1.25 Gbit/sec
After: 1.35 Gbit/sec

Note that my "before" is a bit non-stock, but with a patch which removed two
calls of "simd_relax" (as I wanted to keep max performance over the
interactivity changes). "After" is the new snapshot without any patches.

With respect,
