When I set it to 1 the server cannot handle more then 230kpps which is 
worse then vanilla 7.0 :)
Do you want to see lock profiling and hwpmc output when enabled?

Btw from where I can check if malloc() debugging is enabled, as I want 
to be sure that no debugging is slowing down the tests?
Does `ln -s aj /etc/malloc.conf` disable malloc() dubug?
