SubjectRe: [PATCH 0/5] Reducing fragmentation using zones
> Benchmark comparison between -mm+NoOOM tree and with the new zones

I know you had also previously posted a very simplified version of your real
fragmentation avoidance patches. I was curious if you could repost those with
the other benchmarks for a 3 way comparison. The simplified version got rid of
a lot of the complexity people were complaining about and in my mind still seems
like preferable direction.

Zone based approaches are runtime inflexible and require boot time tuning by the
sysadmin. There are lots of workloads that "reasonable" defaults for a zone
based approach would cause the system to regress terribly.
