I tested this workload on different machines with this commit
d519329f72a6f36bc4f2b85452 and its parent a07630b8b2c16f82, I also
tested with v4.19-rc8 to see if the regression is gone -
the performance drop is there with v4.19-rc8 and with different
machines so I assume this regression is not solved yet.
Here are detailed data:

./Run execl -c $nr_cpu -i 30
