If we eliminated all sanitization we would have a big speed-up:
Benchmark report for AsmBench on dethklok (MacBookPro9,1).
"Baseline" at /Volumes/Data/pizlo/quartary/OpenSource/Baseline/WebKitBuild/Release/jsc
"NoNaNChecks" at /Volumes/Data/pizlo/quartary/OpenSource/WebKitBuild/Release/jsc (r166994)
Collected 4 samples per benchmark/VM, with 4 VM invocations per benchmark. Emitted a call to gc()
between sample measurements. Used 1 benchmark iteration per VM invocation for warm-up. Used the
jsc-specific preciseTime() function to get microsecond-level timing. Reporting benchmark execution times
with 95% confidence intervals in milliseconds.

We will also get ~50% on cray. But I think that benchmark is not currently working. I'll submit a patch for it shortly.
