SubjectRe: [patch] scheduler cache affinity improvement in 2.4 kernels by Ingo Molnar
           So as i see the patch in question is being hit in its weakest
place by that enormous 10 billion thread benchmark.
Indeed that weakest place is the added overhead which effects the
heavy scheduling load.
I look at it as at absolutely worst case. And even in this worst
case we still have a win on a 8-way smp... I`d like to see some
more real-life benchmarks on the issue...

Maybe the tester lose the point, cause the patch was not pointed
to improve the scheduling itself, but to reduce the loss of improper
scheduling - ie cache thrashing.

cheers, Samium Gromoff
