Got some initial nobench numbers for ghc head -fvia-C versus -fasm, on

Overall all of nobench, ghc -fasm averages 3% slower. Not too shabby!
There's some wider variation on the microbenchmarks in the imaginary

    one case 20% faster, another 30% slower, average 2% slower.

On real programs though, 3% slower on average.
