According to LMbench2 on a 2-way 900MHz Itanium 2:

Context switching 0K - times in microseconds - smaller is better
----------------------------------------------------------------
OS                               2p/0k      4p/0k      8p/0k
                               ctx swtch  ctx swtch  ctx swtch 
-----------------------------  ---------  ---------  ---------
Linux 2.5.72                   1.5700000  1.6200000  1.7700000
Linux 2.6.0                      15.0600  8.6900000  8.8600000
Linux 2.6.11                     17.1900    17.2100    10.5400

I have to go now, but I'll try to track this down tomorrow.
