I think everyone interested in learning more about this
topic should go read the following papers, they were very
helpful when I was fiddling around in this area.

These papers, in turn, reference several others which are
good reads as well.

1) W. L. Lynch, B. K. Bray, and M. J. Flynn. "The effect of page
allocation on caches". In Micro-25 Conference Proceedings, pages
222-225, December 1992.

2) W. Lynch and M. Flynn. "Cache improvements through colored page
allocation". ACM Transactions on Computer Systems, 1993. Submitted
for review, 1992.

3) William L. Lynch. "The Interaction of Virtual Memory and Cache
Memory". PhD thesis, Stanford University, October
1993. CSL-TR-93-587.
