[PATCH] time_interpolator: add __read_mostly
Christoph Lameter [Fri, 17 Mar 2006 07:04:00 +0000 (23:04 -0800)]
The pointer to the current time interpolator and the current list of time
interpolators are typically only changed during bootup.  Adding
__read_mostly takes them away from possibly hot cachelines.
