Hmm, I've tried your test with "getuid". Seems not to be cached. Here's the
diff:

===============================================================================
# diff 0.orig.c 0.c
24c24
<      j=getpid();
---
>      (void)getuid();
38c38
<    printf("Average time for System call getpid : %f\n",avgTimeSysCall);
---
>    printf("Average time for System call getuid : %f\n",avgTimeSysCall);
===============================================================================


And here is the result:

===============================================================================
# strace -c ./0
Average time for System call getuid : 10564.581055
Average time for Function call : 2.285000

Here is the result from a bhyved CentOS on an Intel i3:
