Re: [Fedora-ia64-list] RFC: Thoughts on SPARSE memory



lmbench-2.5 on a 4cpu HP Integrity rx4640 with discontiguous and sparse
memory configurations.  Kernel was kernel-2.6.17-1.2439.  Both kernels
were compiled on this system to ensure consistency.

I will run some stress testing to check for regressions on sparse.
