    yeah, the posted numbers look most weird, but there's a complete lack of
    any identification of test environment - so we'll need some more word
    from Roman. Perhaps this was run on some really old box that does not
    have a high-accuracy sched_clock()? The patch below should simulate that
    scenario on 32-bit x86.
