The changes in CPU consumption are remarkable. I've looked through the
changelogs but cannot find mention of where all that time was being

How well have these changes been tested with NFS?

The changes are complex and will probably do Bad Things for some
people. Does the code implement sufficient
debug/reporting/instrumentation to enable you to diagnose, understand
and fix people's problems in the minimum possible time? If not, please
add that stuff. Just go nuts with it. Put it in debugfs, add /*
DELETEME */ comments and we can pull it all out again in half a year or

Or perhaps litter the code with temporary tracepoints, provided we can
come up with a way for our testers to trivially gather their output.
