Performance issues on Linux arise in many forms and may have several root causes. While in this series I have focused on processor corner-cases, those are in fact a tiny sample of how thing can go wrong for performance. Many other factors matter, particularly well-thought algorithms and good hardware. Without a well-crafted algorithm, there is no compiler optimization or quick hack that can improve the situation.
