OK - that's interesting.

Here are the std deviations:

x86-logger-tsc: 7.4%
x86-shmem-tsc: 0.5%
x86-logger-ACPI_PM: 3.6%
x86-shmem-ACPI_PM: 2.4%
ARM-logger: 8.4%
ARM-shmem: 15.9%

Performance ratios:
x86-shmem-tsc/x86-logger-tsc -> 5.9
x86-shmem-ACPI_PM/x86-logger-ACPI_PM -> 0.36
ARM-shem/ARM-logger -> 2.3

It would be nice to understand why the ARM numbers are
not more consistent. I'll try to take a look at this next week.

Thanks for the data.

I recently started work on my own performance test suite
for logger. I'm taking the approach of simulating log
insertions based on log timings from a sampled device, and
measuring cost per message. I'm not sure when I'll finish
it, but I'll post results when I have them.
