Hrmmmm, I misread the CI log [1]. The Arndale is working fine without
this patch.

I'm able to confirm to confirm this behavior locally on my board. So
both Midway and the Arndale is impacted with this bug. Even though it
took a bit longer to reproduce the issue on the Arndale.

With your series, the benchmark is broken on midway and working on the
Arndale. So there is a hidden bug at least on ARM32.
