    Hello,

    as a new user of Skylake-SP I noticed very poor performance compiling linux kernels compared to expected numbers. Using the i7z tool I found that during compile all cores went down to "AVX2 heavy" turbo frequencies. After some investigations I found that you need at least 2 commits from glibc 2.26 to avoid non-helpful use of AVX512 load/stores that will cause the CPU to limit to "AVX2 heavy" turbo frequencies.

    Patches:
    sourceware.org Git - glibc.git/commit
    sourceware.org Git - glibc.git/commit

    @Patrick Could you please verify on your machines if you were not using glibc >= 2.26?

    Regards Andreas
