    But did this percpu usage grew with 2.6.33 ?

    In my understanding, ipv6 always wanted a lot of percpu data for its
    MIBS (including per device MIBS), the big increase occurred with commit
    96793b482540f3a26e2188eaf75cb56b7829d3e3
    from David L Stevens, when RFC 4293 was implemented.
    On IPV6, each net device needed 4096/8192 additional bytes of memory per
    possible cpu.

    An attempt to reduce SNMP mibs by 50% was attempted one ago, but not
    completed. I'll try to find some time to resurrect the patch.

    [RFC] percpu: convert SNMP mibs to new infra

    (use one single table, for both user/bh contexts on x86)
