But *f I have a dedicated web server, and I have a lot of traffic, *if* (and only if)
I can take some performance advantages
from putting a web server into kernel space, I'd like to have those advantages.

Why not for dedicated servers if this can take some advantages for them?

It's true. But I'd be an idiot if I can improve performance and I don't do it.

However, if an httpd can be as fast as an kernel space httpd it'd be a bad thing to put it
in kernel space.
