With default settings it shows not only ethernet costs but also 
all incoming packet processing costs.  You may try setting and net.isr.direct_force to 0 to see what actually 
takes cpu time, and playing with various network settings 
(including net.isr.*) to see if it would be possible to reduce 
load in your case.
