But those numbers aren't about the mincore() change. That's just from
dropping caches.

Now, what's the difference with the mincore change, and without? Is it
actually measurable?

Because that's all that matters: is the mincore change something you
can even notice? Is it a big regression?

The fact that things are slower when they are cold in the cache isn't
the issue. The issue is whether the change to mincore semantics makes
any difference to real loads.
