Funnily enough, mine’s that sometime in 2010 or 2011, things
got faster again, except for anything using TLS or atomics,
of course. Might be the compiler.

30000 packages. We have nearly 10000 *source* packages.

Right, I have the opposite impression about gcc, but I do
see noticeable speed issues with TLS and atomics due to the
need to use a syscall. (I’d rather break the ABI and define
a new one, with a register for TLS set aside and a VDSO for
atomics that only call into the kernel when required.)
