-O3 as a performance theme

Registered by Michael Hope on 2011-10-19

Most distributions build at a medium optimisation level but a fair bit of our work is enabled at -O3.

Discuss the current status, benchmark results, arguments to justify, and areas that need work.

Whiteboard

We will be changing to using a theme to tie together most of our
performance work to help set the direction and to make the work more
visible. Plan the work for this theme including:

 * Current status
 * Benchmarking
 * Arguments that need to be made to justify
 * Areas that may need work

This should tie together our performance hacking time as well so that
we understand the areas by the end of the week.
