Haven't really noticed that.

So you want to:

- investigate and fix the kernel


- just tweak the toolchain (thus implying no investigation)

I think investigation is paramount in both cases.  Unless I am misplacing
your and/or, but given the sentence after that I do not think so.

Anyway, you sure you are getting accurate numbers?  I just saw top reporting
1280% for a cc1 process and after that I also saw this 516.62% 93.75% perl.
A bit whacked.

For all we know it might be namei resolutions that's causing issues
(.wrapper/bin uses hardlinks for example).
