*Appeared* faster than on bare metal, or *was* faster than on bare metal?

If the source of the change was the Turbo Boost, it's entirely
possible that the difference is due to the placement of workers on
cpus -- i.e., that Linux's bare metal scheduler makes a worse choice
for this particular workload than Xen's scheduler does.
