For the people who have not yet read that PDF:

While the sched-numa code is relatively small and clean, the
current version does not seem to offer a significant
performance improvement over not having it, and in one of
the tests performance actually regresses vs. mainline.

On the other hand, the autonuma code is pretty large and
hard to understand, but it does provide a significant
speedup on each of the tests.

I have not looked at why sched-numa is not giving a significant
performance improvement.
