SubjectRe: [PATCH 0/1] mm, shmem: map few pages around fault address if they are in page cache
Yes, the simple test does verify that the page fault number are
correct with the patch. So my previous results are from those command
lines, which also show some performance improvement with this change
in tmpfs.

sequential access
/usr/bin/time -a ./iozone —B s 8g -i 0 -i 1

random access
/usr/bin/time -a ./iozone —B s 8g -i 0 -i 2
Best wishes,
