SubjectRe: [patch 05/19] split LRU lists into anon & file sets
Hi Rik, Lee

I tested new hackbench on rvr split LRU patch.
http://people.redhat.com/mingo/cfs-scheduler/tools/hackbench.c

method of test

(1) $ ./hackbench 150 process 1000
(2) # sync; echo 3 > /proc/sys/vm/drop_caches
$ dd if=tmp10G of=/dev/null
$ ./hackbench 150 process 1000

test machine
CPU: Itanium2 x4 (logical 8cpu)
MEM: 8GB

A. vanilla 2.6.24-rc8-mm1
(1) 127.540
(2) 727.548

B. 2.6.24-rc8-mm1 + split-lru-patch-series
(1) 92.730
(2) 758.369

comment:
(1) active/inactive anon ratio improve performance significant.
(2) incorrect page activation reduce performance.


I investigate reason and found reason is [05/19] change.
I tested a bit porton reverted split-lru-patch-series again.

C. 2.6.24-rc8-mm1 + split-lru-patch-series + my-revert-patch
(1) 83.014
(2) 717.009


Of course, We need reintroduce this portion after new page LRU
(aka LRU for used only page).
but now is too early.

I hope this patch series merge to -mm ASAP.
therefore, I hope remove any corner case regression.

Thanks!
