I see opposite tendency on a different set of time consuming
litmus tests comparing herd7 7.52 and HEAD.

herd7 7.52 herd7 HEAD
C-SB+l-o-o-u+l-o-o-u+l-o-o-u+l-o-o-u+l-o-o-u 8.44 6.12

C-SB+l-o-o-u+l-o-o-u+l-o-o-u+l-o-o-u-X 157.87 191.50

C-SB+l-o-o-u+l-o-o-u-+l-o-o-u-CE 5.64 3.52
C-SB+l-o-o-u+l-o-o-u+l-o-o-u-X 3.18 2.52
C-SB+l-o-o-u+l-o-o-u+l-o-o-u-XE 11.81 10.35

C-SB+l-o-o-u+l-o-o-u-XE 0.38 0.30
C-SB+l-o-o-u+l-o-o-u 0.04 0.03

NOTE: These were taken on a fairly old PC, with power-saving mode enabled.

Did you used the original 1p1c unbound test?
I'd like you to compare the updated 1p1c unbound test.

Thanks, Akira
