Hi Linus,

The 1BRD tests finished and there are no conclusive changes.

The overall aim7 jobs-per-min slightly decreases and
the overall fsmark files_per_sec slightly increases,
however both are small enough (less than 1%), which are kind of
expected numbers.

NUMA test results should be available tomorrow.
