Great! So it looks like there is no error here unless there are needed
significantly bigger queues to stop this dropping compared to 2.6.22.
You could try to lower this limit now to something like 10 to find when
drops start to appear. Why 2.6.22 doesn't need this at all is a mistery
anyway (old scheduler?), and it would really need some work (like git
bisection) to find the reason for more than 5 or 10 packet difference.
