Pff, I'm running Windows 7 in Virtualbox using the slower QCOW instead of vbox's defaoult VDI from a SSD. If there should be any performance issues consider to boot with nokaiser or nopti. Yes, using vbox with a HDD is a PITA, but when using a SSD there should be no performance issues. However, as of rencently I expereinced some performance issues, too, but I didn't run vbox with page-table isolation disabled, to compare if PTI is really the culprit. IIRC current *buntu kernels provide the "nokaiser" boot option, for my Arch Linux kernels I'm using the newer "nopti" boot option.
