OK, here is the comparison on 2.6.30-rc4-mm with VM_EXEC logic disabled/enabled.

2.6.30-rc4-mm, VM_EXEC protection OFF
-------------------------------------
nr_mapped nr_active_file nr_inactive_file pgmajfault pgdeactivate pgfree
begin: 2479 2344 9659 210 0 579643
end: 284 232010 234142 260 772776 20917184
restore: 379 232159 234371 301 774888 20967849
2.6.30-rc4-mm, VM_EXEC protection ON
------------------------------------
begin: 2444 6652 50021 207 0 619959
end: 284 231752 233394 210 773879 20890132
restore: 399 231973 234352 251 776879 20960568
We can reach basically the same conclusion from the above data.

Thanks,
