Performance: Core
o Replace several TAILQ users with LIST. LIST can be a little faster than
TAILQ for cases where we don't need queue-like behavior. (f9db33d,
6494772, d313c29, 974d004)
o Optimize the case where we reinsert an existing timeout (e47042f)
o Remove a needless base-notify when rescheduling the first timeout (77a96fd)
o Save a needless comparison when removing/adjusting timeouts (dd5189b)
o possible optimization: split event_queue_insert/remove into separate functions. needs testing (efc4dc5)
o Make event_count maintainance branchless at the expense of an extra shift. Needs benchmarking (d1cee3b)
o In the 2.1 branch, let's try out lazy gettimeofday/clock_gettime comparison (2a83ecc)
