    If it is indeed cache related like you suggested earlier, it would be
    the allocation side of things, like fork()/mmap() that suffer since
    there's fewer hot pages about, but yes, anything creating/destroying

    Most RCU implementations don't have limits, so that could be quite a
    lot. I think preemptible RCU has a batch limit at which point it tries
    rather hard to force a grace period, but I'm not sure if even that
    provides a hard limit.

    Practically though, I haven't had reports of PPC/Sparc going funny
    because of this.
