I couldn't see anything odd in this, but I only read the explanations
and the patches, and the devil is in the details.

But it all looks sane to me, and the added comments all seemed like
good ideas. Plus the performance numbers certainly speak for
themselves, even if the big changes are from that Atom microserver
that I probably personally wouldn't want to use anyway ;).

So Ack from me, maybe a weak review.
