[srslte-users] PDCCH/DCI Blind Searching

Hi Patrick,

You should be able to run full 75 Mbps at 20 MHz with that CPU. There are
certainly optimization to be done to the DCI blind search, but we've
measured it to be less than 5% CPU when at full rate. CPU is vastly
dominated by the turbo decoder (80%).
