A number of standard user-space benchmarks also show improvements with this patch set.
Strange that the article states this as an afterthought, after giving details about a meaningless measurement: reduction in allocation time as a fraction of the former allocation time. I wonder how much the changes speed up something people care about (such as these standard benchmarks measure).
The improvements mentioned in the article just don't seem like they would make a noticeable improvement.
