I am getting 300 Mbps in both directions.

Being capped at 200 Mbps was because `powerd` wasn't enabled on my
FreeBSD, and "turbo" frequencies weren't being used. Enabling `powerd`
means I feel my relay can handle 300 Mbps (and CPU usage dropped because
the clock speed increased). Previously 10 MB/s (80 Mbps) took 30% of
CPU, now the same amount of bandwidth takes 20%.

I'll look at this.
I feel it's my Linksys WRT1900AC because consumer routers aren't
designed for the traffic high-bandwidth Tor relays handle, even after
flashing things like OpenWrt.
Would running two instances help with a consumer router's limited NAT
