This is really interesting.  We had previously seen some evidence that
the Xeon sucks at running Postgres, but I thought that the issues only
materialized with multiple CPUs (because what we were concerned about
was the cost of transferring cache lines across CPUs).  AFAICS this test
is using single CPUs.  Maybe there is more going on than we realized.
