Looking at those tests, there was a huge jump in relative performance for
Hammer once they did multi-threaded tests - and this was on uniprocessor

Of course, comparing a filesystem with infinite snapshots and history
retention to one that doesn't do it at all is never going to work out the
same for speed.  It's like comparing elephants and chimpanzees in a weight
