Subject[PATCH] [16/35] i386: Add an option for the VIA C7 which sets appropriate L1 cache
Date

From: Simon Arlott <simon@arlott.org>

The VIA C7 is a 686 (with TSC) that supports MMX, SSE and SSE2, it also has
a cache line length of 64 according to
http://www.digit-life.com/articles2/cpu/rmma-via-c7.html. This patch sets
gcc to -march=686 and select s the correct cache shift.
