Sure, so this is on an Westmere-EP (2 sockets, 6 cores/socket, 2
threads/core), what I did was:

perf record -r2 -gf make bench
perf report > foo.txt
bzip2 -9 foo.txt

Both files are about 0.5M, the tip one has the sirq-rcu patch and linus'
patch applied (could do one without if wanted).

http://programming.kicks-ass.net/sekrit/39.txt.bz2

However, looking at them, the weird thing is, they're both dominated by
(taken from 39.txt):

I've no idea why its doing that, I've had massive trouble getting this
MOSBENCH crap working in the first place since its all in python, but
what I basically done was rip out everything !exim in config.py and put
cores = [24]. In hosts.py I too ripped out everything !exim, cleared out
the clients list and made 'tom' my localhost (removing that perflock
thing).

After that things more or less ran, I saw exim, and its giving me those
msgs/sec/core numbers like:

# perf record -r2 -gfo 39.perf.data make bench
