We tested on i386 as well at the time, and it looked like a tiny improvement. But doing the statistics, it was in the noise. I have no numbers for x86_64 or ppc64. If you have reason to believe that there could be regressions, we should indeed do the benchmarks. Sidenote: The patches 1 -- 2b alone still make sense, so I would vote not for delaying their inclusion until we can collect numbers for all arches we care about to take a decision on patch 3.
