Added to makefile in vdsl-app and vdsl-control

     --disable-dsl-pm-retx-counters \
     --disable-dsl-pm-retx-thresholds \

vdsl_cpe_control commands were ignored when trying to disable it by them.

xcpe_567517_562301.bin: VDSL over ISDN incl. vectoring support for 
VRX200, version: 6.7.5 | ADSL Annex A for VRX200, version: 6.2.3

Yes slow but why ? Because of load or because of hardware, Zyxel on 
stock openwrt driver can achieve 80Mbps without that much load.
