Thanks for retesting it, but I'm at a loss for why we're seeing this:

IMA is the the integrity management subsystem. It will use the iversion
field to determine whether to remeasure files during remeasurement. It
looks like the kernel config has it enabled, but it doesn't look like
it's in use, based on the info in the initial report.

This patch only affects two inlined functions inode_cmp_iversion and
inode_cmp_iversion_raw. The patch is pretty trivial (as Linus points
out). These functions are only called from IMA and fs-specific code
(usually in readdir implementations to detect directory changes).

XFS does not call either of these functions however, so I'm a little
unclear on how this patch could slow anything down on this test. The
only thing I can think to do here would be to profile this and see what
stands out.

Note that we do need to keep this in perspective too. This 18%
regression on this test follows around a ~230% improvement that occurred
when we merged the bulk of these patches. It's should still be quite a
bit faster than the v4.15 in this regard.

Still, it'd be good to understand what's going on here.
