Those conclusions are oversimplified - in general they might be useful
but you are talking about a very specific, very large and subtle set
of operations with a very specific set of interacting hardware and
software components, the software ones of which change a lot from
release to release.

Much more compelling for a problem that has been with us for a while,
has been a moving target in software terms, and many people have
looked at, would be just to test your change on an XO-1 and report
back.  If you don't have one - and even if you do - others will be
interested in testing your changes on an XO-1, too.

Please can you provide an easy way for people with an XO-1 and a
well-supported release to objectively gather the speedup of your
patch?  Or at least some numbers of your own?
