Ok. I assume it's not caused by my patch. Let me know if that is wrong.
I also pushed the patch before to my tree (which is 0day tested) and there
was no such report (but of course trinity is somewhat random).
BTW if you're going to test trinity for perf it may be better to use
Vince Weaver's version here
which has more coverage for perf than normal trinity.
