I don't check the timing, but instrument the code to see if what
happens is what is expected.

Now, the overhead reduction resulting from this change in Linux is
quite straightforward: Every time the current mapping doesn't cover
the request at hand, an unmap is carried out by the original code,
which involves a linear search through acpi_ioremaps, and which
generally is (at least a bit) more expensive than the linear search
through the list of opregion-specific mappings introduced by the
$subject patch, because quite likely the acpi_ioremaps list holds more
items.  And, of course, if the opregion in question holds many fields
and they are not covered by one mapping, each of them needs to be
mapped just once per the opregion life cycle.
