    Subject[patch] pagecache SMP-scalability patch [was: spinlock usage]


    if you are doing SMP-intensive dbench runs, then check out the SMP
    pagecache-scalability patch (against 2.4.2-ac20):

    this patch splits up the main scalability offender in non-RAM-limited
    dbench runs, which is pagecache_lock. The patch was designed and written
    by David Miller, and is being forward ported / maintained by me. (The new
    pagecache lock design is similar to TCP's hashed spinlocks, which proved
    to scale excellently.)

    (about lstat(): IMO lstat() should not call into the lowlevel FS code.)
