I found performance regression caused by a series of git commits of Dec 6, 2016.

The measurement is based on bench.php from php itself. The purpose is to execute all the benchmark functions 30 times:

--- /Users/box/php-src/Zend/bench.php	2016-02-02 18:31:19.000000000 +0800

I ran bench.php on a Mac Pro with 12x2.7 Xeon E5 under OS X El Capitan 10.11.6.

The compiler is gcc-5.4.0:

/opt/bin/gcc -v
Using built-in specs.
Target: x86_64-apple-darwin15.6.0
Configured with: ../gcc-5.4.0/configure --prefix=/opt --enable-languages=c,c++,objc,obj-c++
Thread model: posix
gcc version 5.4.0 (GCC) 

The configure script is:

YACC=/usr/local/bin/bison CC=/opt/bin/gcc ./configure --prefix=/opt/php7 --enable-opcache --without-sqlite3 --without-pdo-sqlite --disable-phar --without-pear

For git fe084168d0e7de28dc0efdd58635748de414ac9e:

$ /opt/php7/bin/php bench.php
Total             13.853

$ /opt/php7/bin/php bench.php

and for the version of the time I wrote this bug report:

$ /opt/php7/bin/php bench.php                    
Total             15.353

There is a 10%+ performance loss since then.

Is this still relevant, or has the reported performance regression
been fixed in the meantime?
