I love this patch :) Our performance validation team found ia64_global_tlb_purge()
performance problem in do_wp_page()/ia64_global_tlb_purge(), copy-on-write.

When they does fork() at the rate of 4-500 fork/sec, 40% of cpu time was spent in 
copy-on-write's ia64_global_tlb_purge. By this, customer's shell-script cannot scale
enough. (we asked them to reduce fork()..)

(Because they have already removed their test enironment, I can't ask them to try
 this patch. sorry.)
