Subject[PATCH 6/9] perf bench: Allow passing an iteration count to "bench mem mem{cpy,set}"
Date
From: Jan Beulich <JBeulich@suse.com>

"perf stat ... perf bench mem mem..." is pretty meaningless when using
small block sizes (as the overhead of the invocation of each test run
basically hides the actual test result in the noise). Repeating the
actually interesting function's invocation a number of times allows the
results to become meaningful.
