    Ok, thanks for doing that, it's really useful - this saved me a day
    of testing and allows me to accelerate these patches and try to
    queue them up in tip:sched today.

    Note, we have regressed the load-balancer in recently but its
    inherent complexity makes it pretty hard to fix. We dont max out
    kbuild performance for example - i see this in my distcc builds.
    Would be nice to sort that out too for .32, on top of Peter's
    power-balancing series.

    We've got the sched-domains setup simplification suggestions from
    Peter as well, those could be done separately (but are important as
    well, to express more complex hierarchies like Magny-Cours).
