With gc.DEBUG_STATS, each GC collection displays the elapsed time.
Unfortunately, this elapsed time includes the debug overhead itself,
most notable the calls to gc_list_size() which can be quite expensive
with lots of objects in the older generation. Consequently, collections
of generation 0 will incorrectly appear as very expensive, while in
non-debug mode they are very cheap.

Here is a patch to get a more useful output, by not including the time
taken in gc_list_size().
