What does that mean? Gentoo uses a heavily patched kernel which goes far
beyound of what we dicuss

Even then, it's about only 10 percent. Let's compare them with vanilla
kernel, optimised for P4:

# time bzip2 -9k out.wav

real    0m42.862s
user    0m41.410s
sys     0m0.310s

The same running an unoptimised vanilla kernel:

real	0m40.990s
user	0m40.640s
sys 	0m0.350s

Where is the performance gain you are talking about? Not even two
percent, haha.
