Packet bursting/compression on wireless links...

I've been testing the performance of my Prism 2.5 cards using Netperf.
I've got throughput of 5-6 Mbps with large (cca 1500) UDP packets, but only
under 1 Mbps with small ones (100).
My explanation was that it's due to approximately constant network overhead
independent of packet size.
1. Is it correct ?
2. Does hostap support or does anybody know some software, that would pack
the stream of small packets to a big one and unpack it on other side. Some
additional compression would also be nice :-)
I think, this procedure is in 108Mbits Turbo-mode known as packet bursting.
