SubjectRe: [PATCH] [RFC] [2.5 i386] GCC 3.1 -march support, PPRO_FENCE reduction, prefetch fixes and other CPU-related changes
From
Date
Added, with the exception that sfence is only used if CONFIG_X86_OOSTORE
is not defined (currently never).

This patch, to be applied after the previous two ones, does:
- s/dep_bool/bool/ in config.in for CONFIG_X86_PPRO_FENCE
- Works around make xconfig brokenness in config.in
- Adds an option in config.in to select the processor to optimize for,
that determines the -mcpu flags
- Supports lfence, mfence and sfence

kernels also enable out of order memory stores for this CPU, which
can increase performance of some operations.

+CONFIG_MCPU_386
+ This is the processor type the kernel will be optimized for. The
+ kernel will run on the processor you selected in the previous
+ question and processors compatible with it, but it will run faster
+ on the CPUs selected here and slower on others.
+
+ The following settings are available:
+ - "386" for the AMD/Cyrix/Intel 386DX/DXL/SL/SLC/SX, Cyrix/TI
+ 486DLC/DLC2, UMC 486SX-S and NexGen Nx586.
+ - "486" for the AMD/Cyrix/IBM/Intel 486DX/DX2/DX4 or
+ SL/SLC/SLC2/SLC3/SX/SX2 and UMC U5D or U5S.
+ - "586" for Pentium/K5/5x86/6x86.
+ - "586+MMX" for Pentium-6x86MX/CyrixIII/C3/Winchip. Currently this
+ is the same as "586".
+ - "686" for Pentium-Pro and other 686 processors.
+ - "Pentium-II" for Pentium-II. Currently this is the same as "686".
+ - "Pentium-III" for Pentium-III. Currently this is the same as "686".
+ - "Pentium-4" for the Intel Pentium 4.
+ - "K6" for the AMD K6.
+ - "K6-II/K6-III" for the AMD K6-II/K6-III processors. Currently
+ this is the same as "K6".
+ - "Athlon" for the AMD Athlon
+ - "Athlon-ThunderBird" for the AMD Athlon ThunderBird. Currently
+ this is the same as "Athlon".
+ - "Athlon-4/XP/MP" for AMD Athlon 4/XP/MP processors. Currently
+ this is the same as "Athlon".
+ - "Crusoe" for the Transmeta Crusoe.
+
+ If you don't know what to do, choose the same processor that you
+ chose in the previous question. If you still don't know what to do,
+ choose "686".
+
CONFIG_X86_PPRO_FENCE
Allows the kernel to run on Pentium Pro systems by supporting a
workaround for the store ordering bug present on them.
