Remove it completely. Sockey options should not be needed with Linux kernels
2.4 or layter. Check out your networking hardware - NICs, HUBs, Switches and
cables - the quality of these have a significant impact on network
performance. Also, use 'ethtool' to verify that your NICs are operating at
the maximum speed.
