    I believe that was more or less the topic of this paper:
    http://kernel.org/doc/ols/2006/ols2006v2-pages-73-78.pdf

    Although these seem sort of tangentially related:
    http://kernel.org/doc/ols/2006/ols2006v1-pages-369-384.pdf
    http://kernel.org/doc/ols/2006/ols2006v2-pages-125-130.pdf
