    Of course, if you can actually measure it, that would be
    interesting. Naive math gives you a guess for the order of
    magnitude effect, but nothing beats real numbers ;)

    The SYSV folks actually did have a buddy allocator a long time ago and
    they did implement lazy coalescing because is supposedly improved
    performance.

    See chapter 12 section 7 in "Unix Internals" by Uresh Vahalia.
