[Samba] suggestions for a "fast" fileserver (congestion control->highspeed)

One other tuning note I just found out (from experimenting).

Use a high speed congestion control algorithm.

I just tried htcp and reno(the default)...and both had lower
throughput by ~200MB/s than my normal default
of 'highspeed'. 

It seems that it is irrelevant of actual congestion, since
there's a dedicated line between the two machines

Just another 'heads-up'
