It's anything that calls 'profile_enter(0,prof)'. Which currently is
only used by the hashitem(...) call. SO it's the profile for finding or
adding to the various hash tables.

Since it's a frequently called function I can see it having such an
impact. Because of the impact there's a define at the top of hash.c
(HASH_DEBUG_PROFILE) which you can comment out do disable it. Just
change line #29 from "/* */" to "/* *".
