Turns out that was a stupid idea since this approach probably just
measures the time cat needs to start x10000.

If I create a file containing the content of UTF-8-test.txt 10'000
times (resulting in a 2'981'000 line file) and cat that one the old
decoder uses around 17-18 second while the new one takes around 18-19
(so the new one may be slightly slower).

I ran the command only around 5 times so if the suckless community
thinks performance is critical in this case we would need to do some
proper benchmarking.
