    Sorry, I was a bit hasty.

    Hackbench is a test from Rusty Russel that's intended to test the scalability
    of the scheduler. The results I gathered are from a test where 100 processes
    are started to send a message to another set of 100 processes. This is
    repeated at least a few times and the time taken to complete each instance
    is averaged. Anyone feel free to correct me as I learned this second hand.

    The general trend in the metric indicates everything has been improving, so I
    think we rock.
