The "log --follow" speedup comes from turning on commit-graphs. You can
see a similar effect without "--follow", since "git log <path>" is going
to be dominated by the commit traversal, and not accessing the trees
(especially if <path> is at the top-level).

Probably. I also frequently run the perf suite between major version
releases, and this kind of noise is quite common.

Perf changes of this magnitude are usually pretty easy to bisect. You
can even do:

  git bisect start --term-old=slow --term-new=fast

so you don't have to confuse yourself with opposite good/bad markers.
I just ran:

  make && (cd t/perf && GIT_SKIP_TESTS=p3400.[3456] ./p3400*)

at each stopping point and eyeballed the resulting time (which for some
reason seems to be about 10x faster than Stolee's machine, but does
still show the same relative speedup). I was surprised that this also
yields 31b1de6a09 (commit-graph: turn on commit-graph by default,
2019-08-13). I wouldn't have expected commit access to dominate the
rebase time so much.
