    But doesn't this:

    I-TLB userspace misses: 142369 I-TLB userspace misses: 2179 ITLB u: 139190
    I-TLB kernel misses: 118288 I-TLB kernel misses: 1369 ITLB k: 116319
    D-TLB userspace misses: 222916 D-TLB userspace misses: 180249 DTLB u: 38667
    D-TLB kernel misses: 207773 D-TLB kernel misses: 167236 DTLB k: 38273

    mean that we're mainly missing on data accesses?

    The workload you're using also does write(), and the write() paths got
    significantly deeper.

    Stack misses, perhaps. But a tlb entry caches the translation for a single
    page, yes?
