That's only half the calculation.  The *other* half is if you have gear that
has a packets-per-second issue - if you go to 9000 MTU, you can move 6 times as
much data in the same packets-per-second. Anybody who's ever had to
trim a complicated ACL list because it saturated the CPU knows what I mean.
