I don't think there's too much opportunity to rearrange the fd table.
We go from task_struct->files_struct->fdtable->fd[i]. I have a plan
to use the Maple Tree data structure I'm currently working on to change
that to task_struct->files_struct->maple_node->fd[i], but it'll be
the same number of cache misses.
