This regression happened on "lkp-hsw-ep2", but “lkp-hsw-ep2” has been
removed from the LKP tbox, so we retest the regression on another tbox
“lkp-hsw-ep4”, their hardware is almost the same, "72 threads Intel(R)
Xeon(R) CPU E5-2699 v3 @ 2.30GHz with 256G memory". The test result is
in the attached file compare.txt. The regression is -6.7% for v5.6, the
origin regression is -8.9%, it is not serious as it test on

The test probably runs on a PMEM device so there's no slowdown from the
actual IO and the in-memory checks are measurable, though 28% is a lot,
I'd expect something like 5-10% at most.
