You may have noticed I've been cleaning up the pmap module over the
last couple of days. The net result of this should be a slight to
moderate performance improvement, since a fairly expensive routine
was deleted. Chris Gilbert has promised to run his standard speed
tests for me.
I've also taken a fairly expensive debug check out of the prefetch
abort path of non-SA110 CPUs, and this may improve things, as well.
I've tested all of this on a Shark with an SA110. Please file a
bug report with send-pr(1) if you have any trouble.
"More to come."
