no, i'd not be in this discussion anymore if i thought that. But i do
think that your benchmark results are extremely sloppy, that make your
conclusions on them essentially useless.

you were hurling quite colorful and strong assertions into this
discussion, backed up by these numbers, so you should expect at least
some minimal amount of scrutiny of those numbers.

i'm referring to your claim in this mail of yours from 4 days ago for
example:

http://lkml.org/lkml/2007/2/25/116

"But note, that on my athlon64 3500 test machine kevent is about 7900
requests per second compared to 4000+ epoll, so expect a challenge."

no matter how i look at it, but 7900 is 1.9 times 4000 - which is
"almost twice".
