Thanks a lot, Jason.

So for this particular set of workloads on a big machine, I think the
result is mixed and overall "neutral", but I expected the variation probably
could be bigger especially for light workloads.

Any comment from the maintainers and others? Ping Peter and Ben, I haven't
heard from you for the 5th version.
