Well, IIRC it was benchmark that was slowed down, on huge system, so
it was exactly "this could be a problem".

Anyway, I don't care about -stable series too much (and sorry for
replying to such an old mail), but perhaps the docs should be updated?

Examples cited there are such as "data corruption" or "oops", which is
clearly different ballpark then "slowdown".
