    Meta-data test, time find on 11 million inodes (designed such that
    the filesystem meta-data blows out main memory):

    time find /build > /dev/null
    df -i /build
    Filesystem 1K-blocks      Used     Avail Capacity  iused
    BUILDX     897966080 236821248 661144832    26% 11383321

    Without swap cache:

    Remount to clear VM page caches, then enable swap cache:

    4.663u 48.912s 1:49.35 48.9%    16+66k 2+0io 8pf+0w		(steady state)
	(basically no HD activity, SSD 30-60MB/sec all reads)

	Steady state reached w/ approximately 4.7GB in the swap

    iostat shows SSD is about 55% busy.  The cpu is 50% busy, so the
    lack of meta-data read-ahead is an issue (maybe something I can
    work on for HAMMER).
