Subject Loopback slow down affects IB on Linux?
Author Joseph Alba
Recently, Alan Cox posted his job list on Linux. Among the items was:

2. Incredibly slow loopback tcp bug (believed fixed about 2.3.48)

I remember that there was a mention of IB SuperServer on Linux using
Loopback, which is why we have to have the line "localhost" on the
/etc/hosts.equiv file. My question is, does this affect IB running on Linux

Or maybe the better question is, Is this post related to IB?
