What's the hardware configuration? Is it dual-core?

I also track tbench performance with lastest kernels on a couple of quad-core machines,
and didn't find such regression while the results did have fluctuation.

What's the commandline you is using to start tbench? I start tbench with CPU_NUM*2.

BTW, I enabled CONFIG_SLUB since 2.6.22.
