To tangent, do we really need a mount cache that big, even on a highmem
machine?

Yes, in fact on machines with 16GB or so of ram we perform poorly due
to the 4MB size restriction from GFP() allocations. Anton Blanchard
hit this on large PPC64 SMP machines already.

On a 16GB or 32GB ram machine, the hash chains go to 20 deep even on
simple benchmarks and all performance goes to the toilet.

Franks a lot,
