In the real world problems happen and someone has to be able to, in some
fashion, identify and resolve those problems. As such, shipping FreeBSD
releases with INVARIANTS disabled is a mistake and any benchmarks done
without INVARIANTS enabled will fail to reflect most reasonable real world
Although these benchmarks cannot stand on their own merits for many
reasons, I do not see how any benchmark is automatically invalidated by
using the default development configuration.
