[Vm-dev] Call for big benchmarks

Good initiative, but I guess satisfying both  "> 20KLOC"  and
"portable"  at the same time may be a tough ask.

Just a very random thought - I wonder if any insight might be gained
by crossing several of the low level together.
Like run a compute intensive benchmark at the same time as a memory
intensive benchmark?

Unfortunately, for some purposes those benchs are considered too low-level, so I'd like to collect a set of "real world" fat workloads. I'm asking for contributions on computing problems you have. I'll create a public repo as a common place,  explaining what each bench does, so that we can all benefit from the result.
