There have been lots of bug fixes and new features in CC Mode.  Many of
these have needed extra processing.

Still, an increase of ~75% in processing time over the best part of a
decade isn't that bad.  Surely?  Certainly not when compared with the
increase in available computing power.

One workaround is to reduce the fontification level with
font-lock-maximum-decoration.  A value of 3 is full fontification, 2 is
quite a bit less.
