Bare-metal. Note that some of the benefit does come from having tighter
loops for INVPCID/INVLPG, but the big difference is due to INVPCID being
slower.

I am kind of surprised that you are surprised. I was under the impression
that INVPCID-single lower performance is known. Let me know if I did
something wrong.
