Roughly 4.9GByte/sec for local memory.  That sounds about right.

Robin: I certainly agree that per-CPU allocation is the Right Thing
for SMP.  My point is that the quick-list optimization is orthogonal
and my gut feeling is that it's worth doing it.  LMbench on a UP with
and without quicklist should be able to confirm that (and no, I don't
care at all how or where the quicklist optimization is
implemented---just as long as you can take advantage of the fact that
freed directories are already zeroed).
