The patch appears to make some work loads twice as fast ('make clean'),
and it had a reasonable speedup to the 'make -j12'. What do you
consider 'significant'?

I'm willing to do some other network-related benchmarks with his patch if
that would give it better chance of being accepted. (I end up running
with SLUB debug quite a bit on big, heavy, any speedup
in that would be a big help for us...)
