No other issues. As far as I remember, I didn't even bother to try. I
suspect it'll be too slow.

Which means, if I understand correctly, that you have four hyper
threaded cores, which is not the same as eight CPUs. This means your
test was meaningless. You should test the performance hit under load,
not when the other CPUs are idle, as hyper threading does not partition
the task completely between the "cores".
