    Does that mean that BSD already has page coloring implemented ?

    FreeBSD has had page coloring for quite some time.

    Because they don't use buddy lists and don't allow higher-order
    allocations fundamentally in the page allocator, they don't have
    to deal with all the buddy fragmentation issues we do.

    On the other hand, since higher-order page allocations are not
    a fundamental operation it might be more difficult for FreeBSD
    to implement superpage support efficiently like we can with
    the buddy lists.
