Sadly, while I love the concept of performance tracking, the
"will-it-scale" reports haven't really been reliable enough to really
be useful. There is a _ton_ of noise in the numbers, and the
test-cases don't seem to be stable enough to really track sanely.

I wish it was otherwise, because we also got a report of "57.3%
improvement of will-it-scale.per_process_ops" this release.

So I find the kernel test robot performance tracking very interesting
in theory, but as things stand now I think it's just that:
"interesting". Not quite ready for action.
