What type of system was it?

I noticed minor differences for some thread counts on kernel compilations
but for CascadeLake at least, it was mostly neutral. Below is an old test
result based on a previous revision.

kernbench
                               5.13.0-rc2             5.13.0-rc2
                                  vanilla       mm-pcpburst-v2r3
Amean     elsp-2        469.22 (   0.00%)      470.03 *  -0.17%*
Amean     elsp-4        251.03 (   0.00%)      250.83 (   0.08%)
Amean     elsp-8        131.39 (   0.00%)      130.89 (   0.38%)
Amean     elsp-16        74.37 (   0.00%)       75.11 (  -0.99%)
Amean     elsp-32        42.10 (   0.00%)       42.20 (  -0.24%)
Amean     elsp-64        32.21 (   0.00%)       32.14 (   0.23%)
Amean     elsp-128       31.59 (   0.00%)       31.68 (  -0.27%)
Amean     elsp-160       31.76 (   0.00%)       31.69 (   0.21%)

A Haswell machine showed the worst results for kernbench

Amean     elsp-2        459.99 (   0.00%)      465.27 *  -1.15%*
Amean     elsp-4        250.76 (   0.00%)      253.17 *  -0.96%*
Amean     elsp-8        141.28 (   0.00%)      141.78 (  -0.36%)
Amean     elsp-16        77.71 (   0.00%)       77.88 (  -0.22%)
Amean     elsp-32        44.09 (   0.00%)       44.40 (  -0.69%)
Amean     elsp-64        33.79 (   0.00%)       33.46 (   0.96%)
Amean     elsp-128       33.14 (   0.00%)       33.26 (  -0.37%)
Amean     elsp-160       33.26 (   0.00%)       33.36 *  -0.30%*

The series with review feedback and dealing with cpuless nodes is queued
and should complete over the weekend.
