At Suricon18 Joe's talk dealt with trex testing, however he did not test
4.1 yet. So the 'wrong thread' counters weren't yet available. He is
planning to repeat the testing, so we maybe we will learn whether he
will run into the same.

Can you give some more details on your setup? Distro, kernel, ethtool
output, hardware, afpacket section of your yaml, etc?

Also things like trex setup would be useful.
