It also doesn't help using a rewrite rule to not go via the type class:

  "mk/ByteString" forall (bs :: B.ByteString). mk bs = CI bs (B.map toLower8 bs)

and modifying the benchmark so that the rule fires:

      , bench "case-insensitive" $ nf f bs

f :: ByteString -> CI.CI ByteString
f bs = CI.mk bs

What does help a bit is inlining toLower8 in Data.CaseInsensitive. But
with that it's still 44% slower than the no-class benchmark.
