Said by someone which really thinks passing __FILE__ and __LINE__ to
kernel function is going to give a mesaurable performance penalty is
really hilarious however :)

It is crystal clear you really don't understand how to make reliable
benchmarks (and likely you don't really have a grasp of nowaday's
machine contention points), so why you keep talking about it? It would
be more valuable for you and whatever project you follow if you spend
your time coding and making real benchmarking.
