Actually, I'm running some production stuff on that box, so
I rather not put testing stuff on it.  Is there any
particular reason that you wanted this information? Do you
have a reason to believe that mapping will be faster than
copy for AMD procs?

(To everyone) I'd like to get this acked before the 3.6
merge window if there are no concerns/objections.

Thanks,
Seth
