Disagree, for the reasons described in RFC-1626. The IP MTU
described in RFC-1626 has a number of advantages for hosts
using TCP, whether or not NFS is in use.
That came out wrong, my point was that the number on all jumbo frame
implementations should be no lower then 9000 bytes, not that this is the
best possible number. Optimizing for NFS seems to be one of the lowest
considerations on the list of important things though. :P
