    I just came back from vacation. The non linear growth of regression
    indicates lock contention somewhere. Must be something special that was
    triggered by hackbench.

    We have had a regression like that in 2.6.24 before due to order 1 allocs
    in the network layer. The .24 modifications for SLUB introduced page
    allocator pass through for allocations > PAGESIZE/2. Order 1 allocs could
    serialize on zone locks.
