Hmm. 15% may be big in a big picture thing, but when it comes to what
is pretty much a micro-benchmark, I'm not sure how meaningful it is.

And the CPU sensitivity thing worries me. Did you check _why_ it
doesn't seem to make any difference on the Xeon 4110? Is it just
because at that point the machine has enough cores that you might as
well just sit in epoll() in the kernel and uepoll doesn't give you
much? Or is there something else going on?

Because this is a big enough change and UAPI thing that it's a bit
concerning if there isn't a clear and unambiguous win.
