Awesome, Greg. I didn't expect this authoritative an answer. And DCA - the copying of the data directly into the cache of a specific core - being impossible without (something like) NetDMA, went away with it.

@Ramhound Nice in theory, as it turns out: The exact reason by the MS person responsible has been found by Greg Bray, giving the only answer. That's what I wanted, albeit, admittedly, more than I expected.

@Ramhound No reason to dismiss/downvote a question because YOU don't happen to know the answer. Someone else might. E.g. some MS engineer might have blogged about it somewhere. It's just neither I nor you have come across it. Yet? Features are rarely removed outright (rather than deprecated), and you'd think there's a good reason for it.

comment How to disable IPv6 on Debian Wheezy?
Isn't net.ipv6.conf.all.disable_ipv6 = 1 enough? At least iIt did the trick for all interfaces on my machine.

comment How to kill a particular tcp connection in windows?
My system, while TcpView is running, is super sluggish. E.g. Alt-Tab is sloooow and painful. CurrPorts, suggested by Peter Hahndorf does not have this problem.
