Nice! If you fancy doing more tests, here are some files that might be of
start.sh ups the limits and sets LD_LIBRARY_PATH so that MySQL is using the
libc with jemalloc. netbsd.bz2 is a kernel from the 'vmlocking' branch. It
will panic if you unmount a file system, so make sure you do a few syncs
before shutting the machine down if you do run it.. If you experiment with
driving the machine with sysbench remotely, the host needs to be reasonably
powerful (say, a 3GHz Pentium 4) or it will not be able to keep the DB fully
