Hi Yuyang,

I ran these tests with most of the AIM7 workloads to compare its
performance between a 3.16 kernel and the kernel with these patches
applied.

The table below contains the percent difference between the baseline
kernel and the kernel with the patches at various user counts. A
positive percent means the kernel with the patches performed better,
while a negative percent means the baseline performed better.

Based on these numbers, for many of the workloads, the change was
beneficial in those highly contended, while it had - impact in many
of the lightly/moderately contended case (10 to 90 users).
