I am running linux on the 120Mhz Cyrix-6x86 (P150+). THe Cyrix gives
me bogomips of 119.6 which about reflects the 4-5x speedup I see
compared to my old 486dx2-66. (Sorry I have no Pentiums to compare it
to.) The compilation of a kernel setup whose final zImage is ~500k
(compiled with "make dep clean zImage") takes ~11 minutes on the
otherwise mostly idle system with 32Mb ram and no swap.
