I have actually two machines and two kernels: one machine runs with
WITNESS and DIAGNOSTICS and the other without that. On both machines
the current kernel is three times slower than the old kernel. Of course
the debugging kernels are even slower than the non-debugging ones. But,
the three times ratio between old and new kernels is the same on both
