Subjectlmbench results for misc kernels
ok, these are old benchmarks, but i noticed a few exceptional results
in the lot, so i thought they *might* be of use to someone.

i'm not sure how reliable/useful the lmbench is, but i noticed that
page fault latencies of pre5 and pre6 are unusually high. i'm new at
all of this, so i don't know if this is an acceptable trade-off. I also
noticed that the pre4-ac3 showed exceptionally low local communication
latencies -- again, i don't know the real meaning of this.

*personal request* (reply to damonbrent@earthlink.net to lighten
mail-list traffic)
i have a fair knowledge of C. i would like to eventually be able
to contribute to this development (or atleast entertain myself with
experiments). what is the best way to attack this learning curve?
where to best start? Thanks!
