Linus, no need to explain that to me, I'm precisely trying to see how
to disable PTI for a specific process because I face up to 45% loss in
certain circumstances, making it a no-go. But while a few of us have
very specific workloads emphasizing this impact, others have very
different ones and will not notice. For example my laptop did boot
pretty fine and I didn't notice anything until I fire a network
benchmark.
