I queued jobs on 5 testboxes:
- brickland1: 120 core Ivybridge server
- lkp-ib03: 48 core Ivybridge server
- lkp-sb03: 32 core Sandybridge server
- lkp-nex04: 64 core NHM server
- lkp-a04: Atom server

v3.12-rc7 fe001e3de090e179f95d
------------------------ ------------------------
-9.3% brickland1/micro/aim7/shared
....
....
-2.6% TOTAL aim7.2000.jobs-per-min

The comparation base is v3.12-rc7, and we got 9.3 performance regression
at commit fe001e3de090e179f95d, which is the head of rwsem performance
optimizations patch set.

"brickland1/micro/aim7/shared" tells the testbox(brickland1) and testcase:
shared workfile of aim7.

The last line tell what field we are comparing, and it's
"aim7.2000.jobs-per-min" in this case. 2000 means 2000 users in aim7.

I tested "[PATCH v8 0/9] rwsem performance optimizations" only.

Besides aim7, I also tested dbench, hackbench, netperf, pigz. And as you
can image and see from the data, aim7 benifit most from the anon_vma
optimization stuff due to high contention of anon_vma lock.

Thanks.
