You saying this surely has a reason, but making the connection would
help. I don't consider it surprising that a revert of an improvement
makes things worse. You having bothered to find a certain code change
also makes me suspect you've experimented with other scheduler

with the information provided I have no idea what to suggest, sorry.)
