Just to show exactly _how_ important, here's some profiling info of a
machine that has been busy doing TCP over loopback (everything >= 0.5%
included):

Linus, is there any possibility of putting the FPU memcpy into 2.1 as
an experimental feature? I've gotten a lot of good feedback from the
pentium-memcpy list (the only person who's been having problems is on
an SMP).
