Just got back from vacation. Tried to reproduce these results, looks
like our product kernel changed enough that I am not able to exactly
replicate these results and I don't recall the tree I ran these on. I
will redo these tests and share my data in the next rev. Worst case I
can probably drop this test, since there are other hackbench tests in
this patch as well that show improvements. But I'll give it a shot to
make sure no side effects from this. thanks.
