Hi all,

here is another round of lmbench results.  Most notably all benchmarks
that depend on the overhead of syscall entry have improved remarkably.
For comparison I've included some more machines in the table.

The machines:

 indy:     Indy R5000SC 180MHz, 512mb l2 cache, 96mb memory.
 sv002076: Sun Ultra Enterprise E450, 2 x 296MHz Ultra2 CPUs,
           1gb memory (two interleaved).
 dull:     Dell Pentium 200 MMX, 32mb, running Redhat's 2.0.27.
 tbird:    SNI RM200, R4600 133MHz, no second level cache, 32mb memory.

I'm thinking about not saving the temporary registers on syscall entry;
I'm just not shure if this would break the semantics of ptrace(2).
Comments?

Btw, it's a shame for Sun than we can beat their numbers on so much
weaker hardware.
