SubjectTLB flush counters gone in 2.5.35-bk?
Hello,

I was just browsing over the latest bk tree when I saw the following change:

Why was that done? I'm actually about to conduct some tests where I
think that I need this information to check the L1 <-> L2 caching size
influence on kernel data structures. What is the problem with the
existing counters, did I miss some discussion on LKML?

Best regards,
