Fair enough. There were some pgbench results attached to the original
patch submission that gave me a good idea how to replicate the situation
where there's some improvement. I expect I can take a shot at quantifying
that independantly near the end of this month if nobody else gets to it
before then (I'm stuck sorting out a number of OS level issue right now
before my testing system is online again). Was planning to take a longer
look at Greg Stark's prefetching work at that point as well.
