It seems also x86_64 is affected, so anything you find is very welcome.
If I may speculate it could be related to the half TER we're now doing.
As in, we're not feeding large trees to expand anymore, so there're no
opportunities to cleverly expand them to short insn sequences. For
cross-checking try to build with -fno-tree-ter (before the patch) and see
if it's resulting in the same slowdown.
