    Yeah, sounds right, while writing that, it looked kinda ugly. I suppose
    arch land needs to encode cache property somehow if I really want to be
    able to target cache on multicore. Booting becomes.. exciting when I
    tinker down there.

    While tinkering with this, I noticed that when mysql+oltp starts
    tripping over itself, if you move to any momentarily idle cpu, it helps
    get the load moving again, the tail improves. Not hugely, but quite
    measurable. There seems to be benefit to be had throughout the load
    spectrum, just gotta figure out how to retrieve it without losing
