I have run an extensive benchmark called hbench (found in pkgsrc) with 
the "new" kernel. I have to run it with the "old one" (with respects to 
Mr. HP Lovecraft), but it took more or less 20 hours to complete (even 
on a P4 1400 MHz machine), so I'll size the opportunity of Thursday 
being off to lauch it tomorrow's evening. We'll have some (I hope) 
rigoureous points of comparison then.

Hold on and thanks and have fun !
