> A testb microbenchmark

Very interesting. I can confirm that testb seems slower on Skylake too.

And it's not some odd effect of just the call/ret sequence - I did a ".rept
100; .endr" around the test instructions to see, and it shows the same pattern.

Finally, it's not even about %dil and the REX prefix from your choice of
register, it's true even for the one-byte version of "testb %al" (well, two
bytes with the immediate, of course).
