Tested this patchset on Kunpeng920 ARM64 server (96 cores,
4 NUMA nodes), and with the same test case from Jan, I can
see 150%+ boost! (Need to add a patch below [1].)

For the real workload such as Nginx I can see about 10%
performance improvement as well.

Tested-by: Hanjun Guo <guohanjun@huawei.com>

Please cc me for new versions and I'm willing to test it.

Thanks
Hanjun
