Please load cc-mode.el manually as a .el file, and then do this
experiment again and show the profile.  As you see from the above,
most of the time is taken by some function in the
c-before-font-lock-functions, but it's hard to tell which, because
it is shown as a byte code.  Emacs 26 puts 5 functions on
c-before-font-lock-functions, whereas Emacs 25 used only 2, and it's
IMO important to see which one(s) take the lion's share of time.

Also, do you see this kind of degradation in any C++ source file of
comparable size, or is that particular file you used for the profile
especially slow?

Finally, was the line you yanked a line of code or a part of a
comment (or some other syntactic element)?  Does that matter?

Thanks.
