Yes, it works for me, even after:

-CONFIG_PAGE_OFFSET=0xC0000000
+CONFIG_PAGE_OFFSET=0x40000000
...
+CONFIG_VMSPLIT_1G=y
+# CONFIG_VMSPLIT_3G is not set

The page offset change was made by make menuconfig as a consequence of
CONFIG_VMSPLIT_1G. After the Kconfig changes the throughput is almost
40 times worst, but commenting the warnings fixes the issue. I'll send
V2 removing the messages completely.
