Hi Eric,

Any thoughts?

Actually I did some further check. The increased lock contention
comes from the mm zone lock for page alloc/free. I did an
experiment by changing the SKB_FRAG_PAGE_ORDER from 32K to 64K,
the lock contention is dramatically reduced, and the throughput
got some recovery (10% ~ 15% gain) depending on HW platform, but
can't fully recover the -25.7% loss. Hope this info helps.

Thanks,
Feng
