Please keep to reverse christmass tree.

So this patch appears to contain two different changes
1) You only allocate a receive buffer as big as the MTU plus overheads
2) You change the cache operations to operate on the received length.

The first change should be completely safe, and i guess, is giving
most of the benefits. The second one is where interesting things might
happen. So please split this patch into two. If it does break, we can
git bisect, and probably end up on the second patch.

Thanks
Andrew
