Thanks David,

I am in a process of testing the stack for synthetic Linux and then planning to port the same on the chip.

As Ethernet processes on the contigious data and the upper layers need mbufs for processing so I guess converting (copy) into mbuf is a necessary evil which does affect the performance of the system. 

I'll be glad to hear more about telnet implementation from your side. Even I need to implement the same for my project.
