You are correct. My mistake, I overlooked what you said about
this being on 5.3-stable. I am too focused on 6.x-current due
to a few system builds that I've been doing.
Still, I do think it will be interesting to see how the recent -j
changes will effect the benchmarking. The way it worked before,
you often getting "more -j than you asked for", and I think that
would have to be significant.
