So this is expected. seqlock readers are usually very very cheap
operations, and we're now doing lockdep tracking on every iteration
around the loop. As the lockdep help states:

So now since we're also tracking seqlocks in addition to spinlocks, it
creates more overhead.

Disabling CONFIG_LOCKDEP should restore performance.
