I tested this patch in isolation and on my system I didn't notice any
improvements for a single flow (with EMC disabled), I noticed a slight drop
instead with 128 flows in the classifier.
Probably this is due to the fact that I didn't apply yet the first patch of
the series (the one that increases the batch to 32), so I guess I'll defer
this patch until we can apply the rest of the series.
Also, if you guys see an improvement (and since you got some evidence with
VTune), I don't think it matters that on one particular system (mine) I
can't see any benefit.
