SubjectRe: REGRESSION: Performance regressions from switching anon_vma->lock to mutex

libdb does it only once per startup, it's just that it gets restarted
for every
child (it's a library, not a server)

Really the kernel just needs to provide a faster way to get that.
Requiring /proc/stat for that is just insane.

I'll resend the sysconf patchkit I guess :-)
