    It results in more speed for 486-specific accesses, but not for a 386,
    and not necessarily for a 586, either. Can somebody with "real" hardware
    knowledge help out on this? I really don't know enough about the
    architectures, but i'll take a closer look at the new gcc as soon as I
    have the time, promised ;)
