    SubjectRe: [PATCH 19/20] sparc64: use embedding percpu first chunk allocator
    From: Tejun Heo <>
    Date: Tue, 21 Jul 2009 19:26:18 +0900

    > sparc64 currently allocates a large page for each cpu and partially

    > allocator did. As a 4M page is used for each cpu, this results in

    > This patch converts sparc64 to use the embedding percpu first chunk
    > allocator which now knows how to handle NUMA configurations. This
    > simplifies the code a lot, doesn't incur any extra TLB pressure and
    > results in better utilization of address space.
