Yeah, that's actually pretty much in line with expectations.

Something around 5% performance impact of the isolation is what people
are looking at.

Obviously it depends on just exactly what you do. Some loads will
hardly be affected at all, if they just spend all their time in user
space. And if you do a lot of small system calls, you might see
double-digit slowdowns.

Note that it will depend heavily on the hardware too. Older CPU's
without PCID will be impacted more by the isolation. And I think some
of the back-ports won't take advantage of PCID even on newer hardware.
