    The key word in this case is "page colouring", which
    gives a nice improvement for CPU intensive tasks.

    FreeBSD and Solaris do implement page colouring while
    Linux doesn't (yet?). It's not a big performance improvement
    for most common tasks, but it might be nice to have one day.
