Quick datapoint, still collecting data and trying to verify it's
always the case: on my 8-way Xeon, I'm actually seeing *much* worse
performance with libtcmalloc.so compared to mainline. Am generating
graphs and such still, but maybe someone else with x86_64 hardware
could try the google PRELOAD and see if it helps/hurts (to rule out
tester stupidity)?

Thanks,
