    Yes, that's what I meant by the TLB optimizers. But it's going to
    be a fractional effect, isn't it, when you're trying to get the last
    1% out of the machine? And in such a case, you might wonder more
    what all the 4k ones are actually being used for (no problem at all
    if they've ended up behind vmalloced module text).
