Yep, agreed for "feature vs cost", given that the kind of latency that is fixed
in this case really boils down to a sluggish system under a relatively common
workload -- so making this work might be called a "feature". ;)

FWIW, about tracing, well, we should distinguish between features that add cost
to the fast-path and slow-path only.

But I really don't care anymore, since Ingo, Linus, Thomas and yourself made it
very clear that you don't care. So let's not even start this discussion --
it's going nowhere.

Thanks,

Mathieu
