[OpenAFS] OpenAFS speed over the net

In previous tests with 1.3.84 Windws client:
a 2 CPU 2.8GHz P4 client running at 80% on both processors (on the same die,
not a dual CPU box) loaded a dedicated 100BT net to about 35% transferring
files from a 1.2.11 server to the 1.3.84 Win client local drive.

I did increase the cleint thread and process settings..

Then I would look at the network configuration of the Windows
box.   Using two very different hardware configurations on 100mbit/sec
full duplex lans I am able to fully saturate the network at below
30% cpu utilization.   So I am fairly sure the issue is not entirely
related to the windows client.
