I'm pushing this patch set now, in spite of its low quality.  If it
weren't for the fact that much of the sprint work depends on it, I
would *not* be pushing it.  Beginning an unimportant (i.e. constant
prefactor) performace patch with a performance regression and never
testing performance is absolutely the worst way to proceed.

Performance patches are *always* low priority, and should therefore
should only be made when they are both certain to be correct and
have been tested to actually improve performace.  This patch set
violates both principles.
