does it really make sense to list incremental performance improvements there?
I can add it if folks want, but we don't tend to document misc performance
improvements that have no API impact outside the kernel.
as for how much it helps, on a 12-CPU box "build.sh release" is about 2.5%
faster. if I enable __HAVE_CPU_UAREA_ROUTINES so that uareas are also
accessed this way that gives an additional 0.5% speedup.
coincidentally, this almost exactly compensates for the performance hit
of enabling DIAGNOSTIC.
