Sorry for replying late. There was a severe power failure in my Lab.

On core2 arch machines, hackbench regression disappears and there is much
improvement instead of regression.
On Nehalem machine, no big change, comparing with 2.6.31.

On Itanium machines (2 sockets or 4 sockets), the regression become
about 20%. Originally it's 70%.

regression is about 33%.

On Nehalem, tbench regression is about 4%. Original is 7%.

On Itanium, tbench regression is about 16%. Original is 26%

specjbb2005 and aim7 results almost have no variation.

Mike's patch 1b9508f6831e10 could improve netperf loopback testing.
The latest upstream doesn't merge it yet.
