    Yes. I think I know what caused it. And now:

    forget it. BogoMIPS are bogus <DOT>.

    PS: It is probably because udelay's speed depends on alignment in
    misterious ways. If you recompile 2.0.34 again with slightly different
    options so that everything is aligned other way, you may still get
    your bigger bogomips.
