Hamish, this stuff should certainly help you. You could give it a try.
Unfortunately Alexey gave up almost straight away and did not try to
push his work harder.The arguments against the patch were weak, and
addressable. This work needs some more efforts and it may get merged.
Moreover, Alexey came with impressive numbers, and it is difficult to
argue against. Would you give it a try? If it gives performance benefits
for you, I think we could raise this again.
