Well, bits in net-next are new stuff for 2.6.29, not really regression fixes,
but yes, they should give nice tbench speedups.


Now, I wish sockets and pipes not going through dcache, not tbench affair
of course but real workloads...

running 8 processes on a 8 way machine doing a

for (;;)
close(socket(AF_INET, SOCK_STREAM, 0));

is slow as hell, we hit so many contended cache lines ...

ticket spin locks are slower in this case (dcache_lock for example
is taken twice when we allocate a socket(), once in d_alloc(), another one
in d_instantiate())
