    Here too --- actual IO performance is not measurably difference. Doing
    disk IO to highmem page cache pages is going to use a little more CPU
    time due to the necessary bounce buffer copying, but I can't see a
    measurable difference on page cache performance with highmem enabled
    compared to using low memory on PAE36.
