Performance depends on how you implement it

The domain controller normally is not the bottleneck on most networks.

I could be wrong, but the biggest risk would not be performance but whether you could make it all work. I would assume that this would be much more difficult than simply using a Windows server for that. Linux is great for lots of things, but I would question whether the risk/benefit is there in this case.
