Could be, but we don't use Unsafe (at least not explicitly) and the slowdown
does seem to be present in various bits of software (see , for example),
so it seems like something more systematic than a single method call.
Could be a butterfly effect or a combination of different factors like
it was already mentioned.
 LUCENE-7966; the discussion thread contains execution times and
discussion concerning 9 vs. 8 performance (and nobody seemed to know
how to explain the numbers).
