Would that testing include performance of a kernel without these patches
vs one with these patches in a configuration where the new feature is
compiled in but not used?

It does add a number of if (!cfs_rq->runtime_enabled) return branches
all over the place, some possibly inside a function call (depending on
what the auto-inliner does). So while the impact should be minimal, it
would be very good to test it is indeed so.
