It didn't tale long at all to see a number of workloads performing better on this AMD EPYC Zen 3 2P server with the "sched/core" code slated for Linux 5.18 performing better than Linux 5.17 Git.

The Graph500 HPC benchmark was one of the only cases where seeing sched/core seemingly regress with the latest Linux scheduler code.

A lot of wins were racking up in favor of the sched/core Git state...
