Hi.. For some odd reason, getting stack base under Linux (glibc 2.3.5, NPTL),  
is insanely slow. The following results in huge speed up on iBench, and other  
benchmarks (note: diff is with whitespace ignored):  
-    void *stackBase = 0;  
+    static void*     stackBase = 0;  
+    static pthread_t stackThread;  
+    pthread_t curThread = pthread_self();  
+    if (stackBase == 0 || curThread != stackThread) {  
     pthread_attr_t sattr;  
     // FIXME: this function is non-portable; other POSIX systems may have  
different np alternatives  
-    pthread_getattr_np(pthread_self(), &sattr);  
+        pthread_getattr_np(curThread, &sattr);  
     // Should work but fails on Linux (?)  
     //  pthread_attr_getstack(&sattr, &stackBase, &stackSize);  
     pthread_attr_getstackaddr(&sattr, &stackBase);  
+        stackThread = curThread;  
+    }
