Bug description:
  /proc/$pid/maps experienced a significant performance regression for
  processes with large numbers of threads between Precise and Trusty due
  to an upstream bug. This behavior is currently blocking my ability to
  upgrade to Trusty, as we depend on applications with with 10s of
  thousands of threads.

  The issue has been fixed in the usptream -mm tree.
