SubjectRe: [v5,22/22] powerpc/mm: Add speculative page fault
From
Date
Some regression is found by LKP-tools(linux kernel performance) on this patch series
tested on Intel 2s/4s Skylake platform.
The regression result is sorted by the metric will-it-scale.per_process_ops.

Branch:Laurent-Dufour/Speculative-page-faults/20171011-213456(V4 patch series)
