[Benchmarking] Periodic processes invalidating benchmarks

today making a benchmark run I've found another
process competing for the CPU:
9161 root 35 19 409m 88m 8552 R 6.0 1.1 0:03.85
It was not using much, but some of these fellas (like prelink,
which I spotted in another round) hit the disk enough to
flip a run from "non disk bound" to "disk bound" with
obvious consequences in the results.
We need to look into how to avoid them.
