Shouldn't we collect lmbench numbers from the fastest machines of
every platform instead of looking at bogos? They really don't say
much about the chip. In normal kernel use, things like memcpy
bandwidth, csum_* speed, ctx switch, and similar numbers are much
more interesting.

Yes you are right Jakub, but that's not fair because we are the
fastest port right now ;-)
