There are known parts of Emacs C code that could see performance
optimization. But we need someone to actually go ahead and provide

For example, regexp search can see more optimizations (e.g. see
https://debbugs.gnu.org/cgi/bugreport.cgi?bug=63225). As you can
imagine, it is rather commonly used in Emacs as an editor.

Another example is marker processing - Emacs re-adjusts all the markers
in buffer by altering each single marker in O(N_markers). As the number
of markers grow, we get a problem. See
for example (note that the new overlay implementation already provides
the necessary data structures).

etc etc.
