    Well, unsure about the problems I reported earlier - seems to be related
    to modem disconnects during SDET runs ... the hung session seems to lock
    up the system somehow. But that could have been around for ages - I'll
    try to be more scientific about reproducing it at some point.

    SDET results are about the same, kernel compile is down a bit on systime
    (16-way NUMA-Q)

    Kernbench: (make -j vmlinux, maximal tasks)

    Not sure quite what that's all about, but there it is ;-)
