I am running 1 and 2 Oracle DB instances each running TPC-C workload. The
clients driving the instances also run in same node. Each server client
pair is put in each cpu group and tagged.

With this sysbench test I am not seeing any improvement with removing the
condition. Also with hackbench I found it makes no difference but that has
much lower regression to begin with (18%)
