Hi all,

Please find below the results from a complete GUPB run on a patched CPython 3.6. In average, an improvement of about 2.1% can be observed. 

I'm also attaching an implementation of the patch for CPython 2.7 and its benchmark results. On GUPB the average performance boost is 1.5%. 
In addition we are also seeing a 2.1% increase in throughput rate from our OpenStack Swift setup as measured by ssbench.

Compared to my proposition in issue #26382, this patch yields slightly better results for CPython 3.6, gaining an average of +0.36% on GUPB,
and similar results for CPython 2.7.


Hardware and OS configuration:
==============================
Hardware:           Intel XEON (Haswell-EP)

BIOS settings:      Intel Turbo Boost Technology: false

OS:                 Ubuntu 14.04.2 LTS

OS configuration:   Address Space Layout Randomization (ASLR) disabled to reduce run
