Re: [dm-devel] [PATCH 1/2] dm-userspace: use ring buffer instead of system call

This is good to hear.  I am interested in testing it in some of my
real-life situations where performance is slower due to the high
latency.  This mostly affects the boot time of Xen guests.

I have added kernel caching back into my local version (which only
adds 200 lines).  It improves Xen guest boot performance
significantly, but does not affect dbench performance.  I will be
interested to see what kind of performance I can get from your
ringbuffer version, as well as possibly a combination of the two.
