The task_struct isn't particularly slim either. I heard rumblings
that way back when it was shared with the stack the NR_CPUS arrays
filled (and overflowed) the entire stack... It's also enough to
put a wee bit of pressure on ZONE_NORMAL even on smaller task count
workloads.

Perhaps something like this is in order? vs. 2.5.33:
