    The point is it may run faster due to better i-cache usage. Remember
    also that 486 machines don't have much memory, so the gain from reducing
    kernel size is more significant. (Less paging etc.)

    You'd still want string-486.h to _call_ the larger routines in
    string-486.c, using FASTCALL or your choice of alternate registers.
