    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.
