Can you please share some rough numbers, Sasha?

I would expect everything that does a lot of context switches
to benefit automatically, apart from the new free register (which
requires enabling, but also has great potential)

Also of course NMIs will be faster, so perf will have somewhat
lower overhead when profiling.
