You're ignoring the fact that people *did* report things regressed.

That's the part I find unacceptable. You're saying "we picked
something that minimized regressions".

No it didn't. The regression is present and real, and is on a real
load, not a benchmark.

So that argument is clearly bogus.

I'm going to revert the commit since people apparently seem to be
ignoring this fundamental issue.

Real workloads regressed.  The regressions got reported. Ignoring that
isn't acceptable.
