These applied clean and looked good. I ran numbers for kernels
with patches 1-4 and patches 1-5. Results below.

I need to spend a some time staring at this code and putting together
a series of tests to try. I think the basic mechanism looks good, so
hopefully we are down to finding the best numbers for the architecture.
