Subject10.31 second kernel compile

Let the kernel compile benchmarks continue!

hardware: 24 way logical partition, 1.1GHz POWER4, 60G RAM

kernel: 2.5.6 + ppc64 pagetable rework

kernel compiled: 2.4.18 x86 with Martin's config

compiler: gcc 2.95.3 x86 cross compiler

# MAKE="make -j14" /usr/bin/time make -j14 bzImage
make[1]: Leaving directory `/home/anton/intel_kernel/linux/arch/i386/boot'

Due to the final link and compress stage, there is a fair amount of idle
time at the end of the run. Its going to be hard to push that number
lower by adding cpus.

The profile results below show that kernel time is dominated by the low
level ppc64 pagetable management. We are working to correct this, a lot
of the overhead in __hash_page should be gone soon. The rest of the
profile looks pretty good, do_anonymous_page and lru_cache_add show
up high as they did in Martin's results.

Thanks to Milton Miller who helped with the benchmarking, and the ppc64
