OK, so you think there are two distinct problems ?

I have tried to revert this one but it did not change the performance, I'm
still saturating at ~6.9 Gbps.

Yes, I've removed all zero counters in this short view for easier
reading (complete version appended at the end of this email). This
was after around 140 GB were transferred :

Quite honnestly, this is typically the pattern what I'm used to
observe here. I'm now trying to bisect, hopefully we'll get
something exploitable.
