The version that introduced that flag had the same overhead as the
previous version that didn't, at least in my testing, so I'm not sure
it's at all useful.  Part of the problem here is that the number of
instructions that you can afford to take to complete a memory
allocation is just really small, and so every one hurts.  Memory
latency may be an issue as well, of course.
