Ok, so it really is exactly the same thing, just for a regular page,
and there is absolutely nothing huge-page specific to this.

Thanks.

If you can test that (hacky, ugly) yield() patch, just to see how it
behaves (maybe it degrades performance horribly even if it then avoids
the long wait queues), that would be lovely.

Does the load actually have some way of measuring performance? Because
with the yield(), I'd hope that all the wait_on_page_bit() stuff is
all gone, but it might just *perform* horribly badly.
