The highlights:

nw spin rjct lock & function
19.0% 81.0% 0% dcache_lock
3.3% 96.7% 0% d_alloc+0x270
2.7% 97.3% 0% d_delete+0x40
18.3% 81.7% 0% d_instantiate+0x90
4.7% 95.3% 0% d_move+0x60
34.6% 65.4% 0% d_rehash+0xe0
19.1% 80.9% 0% dput+0x40
10.5% 89.5% 0% link_path_walk+0xef0
0% 100% 0% sys_getcwd+0x210

41.4% 58.6% 0% rcu_state
61.3% 38.7% 0% __rcu_process_callbacks+0x260
41.4% 58.6% 0% rcu_check_quiescent_state+0xf0

So it looks like the dcache lock is the biggest problem on this system with
this load. And although the rcu stuff has improved tremendously for this
system, it's still highly contended.
