Netperf's maintainer has been known to accept patches so long as they 
aren't too hairy.  That said, it isn't clear how something operating 
above the socket interface is going to know that the traffic it was 
receiving was in the form of reassembled IP datagram fragments.

happy benchmarking,

I suppose if said software were to dive below the socket interface it 
could find-out, though that will tend to lack portability.
