You shouldn't disable the pagefile.
Everything in the kernel expects it to exist and has been built around that assumption. so if you remove it you will actually get worse performance.
I am struggling to understand which kind of OS kernel functions are speeded up by the presence of a pagefile. It certainly isn't obvious to me.

Could you provide a couple of examples (including an explanation of how the presence of a page file speeds it up), or a link to some source that you base your statement on?
