It could have been sloppy testing - I could have hit thermal
throttling or forgotten to stop Android runtime before running the
test. Looking at my old data, the case for 16 tasks has higher
completion times than 32 tasks which doesn't make sense. Sorry about
that. I was careful this time, I recreated the product tree and
applied patch - ran the same test as in this patch, the data prefixed
with "with" is with patch and "without" is without patch.

The naming of the Test column is "<test>-<numFDs>-<numGroups>". Data
is completion time of hackbench in seconds.

RUN 1:

Test Mean Median Stddev

Let me know what you think, thanks.
