    SubjectInteresting pentium-memcpy results

    Hi,

    I just compared 2.1.46 vs. 2.1.46+pentium memcpy patch, and interestingly
    enough found that the UNIX byte benchmarks tended to _drop_ a fair bit,
    with the exception of process creation and execl throughput. (Note that I
    only ran the basic 'system' tests - TCP bandwidth etc. to be determined
    when I find the newer benchmarks)

    This is most interesting since I used to swear by the patch.

    It does however show us that there still is performance to be gained. I
    presume the process creation test will be using fork() which does a lot of
    memcpy'ing of various process credentials in kernel space.

    Chris
