Err...it looks like it was the padding calculation. With that fixed
up, we can query the profile data to get insights on the most heavily
called functions. Here's what my top 20 are (reset, then watch 10
minutes worth of cat videos on youtube while running `find /` and
sleeping at my desk). Anything curious stand out to anyone?

$ llvm-profdata show -topn=20 /tmp/vmlinux.profraw
Instrumentation level: IR entry_first = 0
Total functions: 48970
Maximum function count: 62070879
Maximum internal block count: 83221158
Top 20 functions with the largest internal block counts:
drivers/tty/n_tty.c:n_tty_write, max count = 83221158
