SubjectRe: [PATCH] Cpuset: rcu optimization of page alloc hook

Hi Paul

Please do use __read_mostly for new kmem_cache :

static kmem_cache_t *cpuset_cache __read_mostly;

If not, the pointer can sit in the midle of a highly modified cache line, and
multiple CPUS will have memory cache misses to access the cpuset_cache, while
slab code/data layout itself is very NUMA/SMP friendly.
