A 15.5% increase in compile times.
So, don't use idle=poll with HT when you know your workload has idle time! I
have not tried oprofile, but it stands to reason that this would be a
problem. There's no point in using idle=poll with oprofile and HT anyway, as
the cpu utilization is totally wrong with HT to begin with (more on that
Presumably a logical cpu polling while idle uses too many cpu resources
unnecessarily and significantly affects the performance of its sibling.
