Thanks Michael - I've reconfigured my relay to enable HardwareAccel,
didn't realize that was an option.  One question I have - what is the
impact of increasing the "MaxMemInQueues" config token?  It's
auto-detecting 8G for this, I have enough headroom to double that - but
the tor daemon is only using 120MB of resident memory...
