I agree with having a feedback page - a "here is an lwipopts I used to solve
X" would be nice.

Users posting code patches which are used for whatever reason (speed, code
size, processor-specific improvement, support for RTOSes, etc.) would dilute
the testing base of lwIP.  Would someone's feedback about something working
or not working be valid against the current CVS HEAD when they've
incorporated patches?  Do you get bogus posts of bugs caused by

Standardizing ethernetif, or calling the interface frozen, would allow a
ports section which would remain valid while lwIP evolves.

A section for assembly internet checksums would be good too - this is
clearly the biggest optimization one can do.

A nice FAQ broken down by topic would be good too.  I know they're hard to
maintain and keep up with.  It's why IMO there are very few good ones for
projects which keep them.
