What kind of system are you using to run these workloads on?

Sorry if I'm missing something, but could you elaborate more on what
these percentages represent? Are they anon vma rwsem + optimistic
spinning patches vs anon vma rwlock?

Also, I see your running aim7, you might be interested in some of the
results I found when trying out Ingo's rwlock conversion patch on a
largish 80 core system: https://lkml.org/lkml/2013/9/29/280

Thanks,
