I've attached it as it's smaller than other peoples' signatures :-)

Should be kind of "execution time", not exactly "runtime". It just adds
a few memory remappings on application startup by updating an address
lookup table. This may cause some additional memory lookups at runtime,
too. Albeit I'm interested in real numbers, I'm pretty sure it won't
affect performance too much.

Hm, it should be available on intel.

There are good reasons for doing it this way, yes.
