Subject: Re: [PATCH RFC] [INET]: Get cirtical word in first 64bit of cache line

Hi Eric,

Attached benchmark test-cwf.c(cc -o test-cwf test-cwf.c), the result
shows when last level cache(LLC) miss and CPU fetches data from
memory, critical word as first 64bit member in cache line has better
performance(costs 158290336 cycles ) than other positions(offset 0x10,
costs 164100732 ) in cache line, the performance is improved by 3.6%
in this case.
cpu-info is also involved too.
