the test is very simple, 24 processes in 24 CPU, and each does:
while (1) {
mmap(128M);
munmap(128M)
}
we then measure how many loops the process can do.
I'll attach the test in next post.
Just found when I said 50x faster, I actually forgot one other patch's
effect, which is http://marc.info/?l=linux-kernel&m=130127782901127&w=2.
If only having the atomic change, it's about 7x faster. Sorry about
this. I'll add detail data in next post.
