Our experience with netmap (http://info.iet.unipi.it/~luigi/netmap/) has shown that it is possible to achieve huge performance improvements in the way operating systems employ packet processing. This result is possible without special hardware support or deep changes to existing software but, instead, by focusing on the bottlenecks in traditional packet-processing architectures and by revising design decisions in a way that could minimize changes to the system.
