Re: KROC & occam on Linux
Whoops - the kernel linked to these benchmarks is a debugging build! It
should not be used for benchmarks (I've added some new figures with the
debugging off and optimisation on.)

Time per context switch = 441 nanosecs
Time per context switch = 518 nanosecs
on a P200MMX w/32MB EDO RAM (66MHz bus) - note _not_ a pentium 2 or
Pentium Pro - these will give better results, even at the same clock
These are comparable to Peter's first figure which was on the same
