When the linux compilation workload runs, the migration time (both the
legacy and this optimization case) varies as the compilation goes on. It
seems not easy to give a static speedup number, some times the migration
time is reduced to 33%, sometimes to 50%, it varies, and depends on how
much free memory the system has at that moment. For example, at the
later stage of the compilation, I can observe 5GB memory being used as
page cache. But overall, I can observe obvious improvement of the
migration time.
