I guess it's more likely because of overscheduling for small crtitical
sections, did you counted the total number of context switches? I
guess there will be a lot more with your patch applied. That
regression is a showstopper and it is the reason why I've suggested
before to add a CONFIG_XPMEM or CONFIG_MMU_NOTIFIER_SLEEP config
option to make the VM locks sleep capable only when XPMEM=y
(PREEMPT_RT will enable it too). Thanks for doing the benchmark work!
