Yeah, my bad..

So at some point I wanted to do dynamic capacity and dynamic smt gain by
using the x86 APERF/MPERF stuff. But it never quite worked and we got
stuck with the remnants.

OK thanks for the info. I think that was 10 years ago? With all the code moves and renaming git log -L was getting more difficult to use as I dug deeper in history :p

Is this work officially dead then? If yes, it ended up not being useful or just never got around finishing it?
