I've run the benchmark for several Emacs versions, on a Thinkpad L580
from 2018 (Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-8550U CPU @ 1.80GHz). In all cases, I
used xdisp.c from version 26.3 as the test file.

  18.59        n/a    0.320
  23.4       5.436    1.019
  24.5      25.482    1.636
  25.3      22.370    1.610
  26.3      16.533    1.911
  27.0.90   17.602    2.339

First column is the version, second and third column are the times with
font-lock-mode enabled and disabled, respectively.
