No. :(  If I had, I wouldn't find your test-case so interesting. 

In any average message board you should find a few users who complain
about a "sluggish" Red Hat Linux 9 or who claim that compiling an own
kernel.org would result in a significant speedup. The usual pointers
on disabling unused services, graphical effects, UTF-8 locale, and
enabling U-DMA are fruitless. Especially when the user with the
problem doesn't cooperate. The average newbie either refuses to do a
few tests or simply installs a different distribution which offers a
faster "feeling". Well, you also wrote that you're going to replace
the machines' hardware soon. But at least you know how to analyze the
problem with tests and test kernels together with a developer from Red
Hat. That's more promising.
