I'm very curious as to what workloads are showing pagecache_lock as
a bottleneck. We haven't noticed this particular bottleneck in most
of the workloads we are running. Is there a good workload that shows
this type of load?

Again, I defer to Ingo for specifics, but essentially something like
specweb99 where the whole dataset fits in memory.

Franks a lot,
