I have just ported linux kernel 2.6.10 for MIPS4Kc-core board.Before
porting 2.6 kernel ,2.4.20 was running on this board. When I took
benchmarks for both the kernels for comparison, I found out that
linux-2.4.20 was giving much better results than linux-2.6.10. The
specs for the board are as follows:

133MHz MIPS4kc
32MB 133Mhz SDRAM
Cache Size: 16KB
Timer interrupt is set to 100 interrupts/sec
The hard disk attached to the board had ultraDMA 5 capability

I am also attaching the benchmarks I took for both the kernels. Is
there any way I can improve 2.6's performance? Thanks.
