What is the conclusion of this test? As far as I see, with the patch
(0001-WIP-Avoid-the-use-of-a-separate-spinlock-to-protect), the performance
degradation is not fixed, but with pin-unpin patch, the performance seems
to be better in most of the runs, however still you see less performance in
some of the runs. Is that right? Can you answer some of the questions
asked by Andres upthread?
