Woah, this is verging into paranoid conspiracy territory.

No, we haven't done other benchmarks, and if we had we'd be sharing
them. And if I had more time to spend on performance of this patchset
that's not where I'd be spending it; the next thing I'd be looking at
would be assembly output of the hooking code and seeing if I could shave
that down.

But I already put a ton of work into shaving cycles on this patchset,
I'm happy with the results, and I have other responsibilities and other
things I need to be working on.
