    Any large 32 bit box with significant numbers of processes will need
    it to cope with the bloat that rmap introduced - this has nothing to
    do with NUMA (some apps may be saved by large pages, some not).
    Avoiding hangs from ZONE_NORMAL oom is not an "optimisation", and I
    doubt optimisations involving major VM changes would be very welcome
    after the freeze. This is something we need to get working ASAP ...
