I have the feeling you did not read my entire message. Please note three

- There is no impact on a I/O bound operation like Indeed we
expected it, but it is good to have a confirmation. 

- As I said, I also tested a billion loops around gmtime(), which is not
I/O bound, and got a significant performance hit of 1%.

- I don't know where you saw I was going to commit ASAP. I am just
posting patches for review and comments and I am quite suprised by your
reaction here. If you think the performance tests I ran are irrelevant,
please propose better ones.
