Mel, this report made it to the regression list for 4.8, but it seems
nothing happened after the initial report. Was it discussed (and maybe
even fixed?) elsewhere? Or was it deemed not important enough? Should I
drop it for the regression list?

Side note: During 4.7 we already already had a performance regression in
the same test (and maybe the same test machine) that in the end wasn't
fixed. For details see the thread "795ae7a0de: pixz.throughput -9.1%
regression" (http://lkml.iu.edu/hypermail/linux/kernel/1606.0/01156.html ).

Ciao, Thorsten
