Ben, yes you are right, the lse-posting in a second reading is misleading.
As reported previously
UP numbers see degradations for LM-Bench, other benchmarks are OK.

This is not solved either by an integration of zero-copy with large pipes.
We have however shown that the for SMP systems adding larger pipes to
zero-copy pipes makes sense and for UP and 1-way sticking with a 1-page
pipe does not degradate Manfred's patch.

It hence boils down to a proper parameterization of the pipe dependent on
the configuration.
