I need to research how important these are.
They are important for cryptography, but we do not care about that.
They are important for discrete/abstract mathematics, but bignum probably isn't in those cases?
+Add CPU-warmup loop to benchmarks.
+ If ondemand scaling is available but not set, set it.
+ If the current frequency is not the minimum, run a
+ catch-fire loop until the CPU is throttled to the
+ minimum frequency.
+ This loop shall be done after help variables have
+ been assigned values, as this can help the warmup.
