I suspect the previous unfavorable results are due to comparing things
with/without the drm vmalloc patch. So I spent one day redo the whole
comparisons. The swap readahead patch shows neither big improvements
nor big degradations this time.

Base kernel is 2.6.30-rc8-mm1 with drm vmalloc patch.

a) base kernel
b) base kernel + VM_EXEC protection
c) base kernel + VM_EXEC protection + swap readahead

(a) (b) (c)
