Hm, for these second round of measurements were you using 'perf stat
-a -C ...'?
The most accurate method of measurement for such single-threaded
workloads is something like:
taskset 0x1 perf stat -a -C 1 --repeat 20 ...
this will bind your workload to CPU#0, and will do PMU measurements
only there - without mixing in other CPUs or workloads.
