In my experience fget() is large even on UP kernels. For instance, a UP
profile from a long-running interactive load UP box (my home machine):

228542527 total 169.5902
216163353 default_idle 4503403.1875
850707 number 781.8998
829885 handle_IRQ_event 8644.6354

300022 vsnprintf 284.1117
271134 __generic_copy_to_user 3389.1750
237151 fget 3705.4844
222390 proc_pid_stat 308.8750

186408 tcp_ioctl 314.8784

154854 skb_clone 387.1350
149377 d_lookup 444.5744
139131 kmem_cache_alloc 668.8990
138638 kfree 866.4875
132555 sys_write 637.2837

This is only aggravated by cacheline bouncing on SMP. The reductions
of system cpu time will doubtless be beneficial for all.


Thanks,
Bill
