I have been doing netowrk performace testing with and without
(comparing) the VIMAGE_GLOBALS option.

SO far I have seen no real significant changes in throughput
or latency, (judged by ministat).
I, however, am only one person and I would love to see if anyone
could confirm this.

just compile two (otherwise) identical kernels, but one with
options VIMAGE_GLOBALS. and perform teh same tests on each and put the 
results in ministat.

any network test you can imagine is fine..
