     Olaf, if you're awake and on-line at/near this hour:-), how about
an update, now that blutmagie has been running long enough to complete
its climb to FL510 and accelerate to its cruising speed?  Also, how about
some numbers for how it ran without libhugetlbfs, even if only approximate,
for comparison?  (The suspense is really getting to me.:^)
