I've tried r/w sizes from 8k to auto (that is 104k for Solaris server  
and 32k for FreeBSD server)... there are minor changes in max speed  
(let's say it ranges from 70 to 80 MB/s).

Well, as long as Gentoo linux and FreeBSD clients show ~100 MB/s...  
BTW I'm using
kernel on x86_64 hardware... I need to use CentOS (I migrated from  
Gentoo for sake of simplicity) but this NFS issue really... well, it  
is not a good thing :-)
