They use the vanilla kernels that ubuntu ship with their own configs,
so they shouldn't be using any expensive debugging option.

I've run myself two of those tests (I've not tested gnupg as I'm
allergic to it). I can't reproduce any regression with 7zip, I'm however
able to reproduce the regression in tiobench write latency, using 32
threads and 64 MB block size (--threads 32 --block 65536). I used ext4
(phoronix uses ext3).
