    page coloring problem?

    i was under the impression on anything 8-way-associative or better the
    page coloring improvements were negligible for real-world benchmarks
    (ie. kernel compiles)

    ... or is this more an artifact that even though the improvements for
    real-world are negligible, micro-benchmarks are susceptible to these
    variations this making things like the std. dev. larger than it would
    otherwise be?
