This makes a HUGE difference on slower hardware. For instance, here's benchmark/flops (I wasn't going to wait for Python to compile) on a 33 MHz m68030 running NetBSD-9.99.100:

Are there edge cases we should test, or are you running bulk builds with this tree to shake things out?

I'm running bulk builds, and the latest one just finished:

I can't find any failures in there that are due to my changes, so I think I've now covered all of the issues that I was aware of, however I'd still love extra testing of this, just because it's such a large number of changes to critical parts of the infrastructure, and I can't rule out edge-cases that change behaviour and now no longer work.

I'll also let it sit in my release branches for a bit, with the aim of getting it in with plenty of time for additional widespread testing prior to the 2022Q4 freeze.
