Compilation on 4.04.0 takes twice as long as 4.03.0 #7456
Original bug ID: 7456

Steps to reproduce
Requires opam package extprot to be installed.

(just looking at the data and making obvious conclusion) the overhead seems to come from "generate" then "compile_phrases" (although the latter could just come from "generate" producing sensibly more code to compile: all backend passes seem to be 30%-60% slower, which is consistent with more code being produced):

The numbers themselves are quite suspect and don't seem to add up. For example, with the 4.03.0 numbers:
I suspect an unrelated bug in the timing infrastructure.
