Interesting - cant say Ive noticed anything bad - quite the reverse. 

Everythings working and and some things like GSM serial port access are
far better/more reliable than before.  Then again, the extra changes I
did involve patching a few things, turning off more debug, using the
slub allocator instead of slab, and -02 instead of -Os.

No benchmarks other than it seems "justified" as far as
speed/reliability go compared to the old debug kernels and works well
with shr-t :)
