There is no such thing as a "100% safe system". Never will be - unless
you make sure you have no users.

Also, people definitely *are* noticing the performance issues with the
current set of patches, and they are causing real problems. Go search
for reports of Amazon AWS slowdowns.

So this whole "security is so important that performance doesn't
matter" mindset is pure and utter garbage.

And the whole "normal people won't even notice" is pure garbage too.
Don't spread that bullshit when you see actual normal people
complaining.

Performance matters. A *LOT*.
