Subject: Re: [f2fs-dev] [PATCH] f2fs: change virtual mapping way for
 compression pages

Plus, differently from your testbed, in my pixel device, there seems
to be much more contention in vmap() operation.
If it's not there, I agree that there might not be a big difference
between vmap() and vm_map_ram().
