The latter is already set to 65535, so there's not much I can do to make
_that_ better. :-)

So anyway, please clarify about net.inet.ip.portrange.hilast and -P1.

I don't even know what "betas" you are talking about, but I assume that
these must be pre-release betas of 9.5.1, yes?

Well, anyway, I have just upgraded to 9.5.0-P1. That's what I'll be
using for now. So I just want to know... Given that I'm running -P1
are you telling me that manually tuning net.inet.ip.portrange.hilast
downward will make no actually difference to what -P1 actually does?

Will changing this tunable help or not help with -P1? (If it won't
make any difference, I won't waste my time changing it.)
