Here's an update.

After http://reviews.llvm.org/D8372 , I updated the profiling data.

It seems now 85% of CPU time is spent inside
In particular, 35% of the samples are spent inserting into
unordered_map, so there's maybe something we can do differently there
(e.g. , Rui's proposal of a concurrent map doesn't seem that bad).
