I know I ran tests against this patch in general and gave an Ack but
these cases were not covered by me. For netperf, I neither vary the number
of threads nor did I cover SCTP_RR so this could be an example of where
the patch is a loss. I also had run reaim but not specifically for one
sub-test like this does and the generation of machines used was much
older than Gold 5318H. Grid or no grid, complete coverage is a challenge
