    Subject[rfc][patch 0/14] mm: performance improvements
    The following patchset is a set of performance optimisations
    for the mm subsystem. They mainly focus on the page allocator
    because that is a very hot path for kbuild, which is my target
    workload.

    Performance improvements are not finely documented yet, so they
    are not indented for merging yet. Also some rmap optimisations
    that Hugh probably won't have time to ACK for a while.

    However, a slightly older patchset was able to decrease kernel
    residency by about 5% for UP, and 7.5% for SMP on a dual Xeon
    doing kbuild.
