SubjectRE: [PATCH RFC] [X86] Compile Option Os versus O2 on latest x86 platform
Hi Ingo

Thanks for your correction, so we use perf stat --repeat 3 to test volano, tbench, and kbuild,
Because netperf has multiple items we may send out later.

volano_Os:

Performance counter stats for '/bm/bin/runs -t volano -r /bm/recipes/lkp-ne02.recipe' (3 runs):

6386111.436735 task-clock-msecs # 13.554 CPUs ( +- 0.336% )

volano_O2:

O2 is better than Os for volano

O2 is not different with Os for tbench
