Hi Eric!

Why keep the pad field? the member to lines down is
__cacheline_aligned, so we shouldn't have to manually 
push things out?

        struct gnet_stats_queue __percpu *cpu_qstats;                           
        int                     pad;                                            
        refcount_t              refcnt;                                         
                                                                                
        /*                                                                      
         * For performance sake on SMP, we put highly modified fields at the end                                                                               
         */                                                                     
        struct sk_buff_head     gso_skb ____cacheline_aligned_in_smp;
