    AFAIK, mingo has an experimental implementation of SYSENTER/SYSEXIT for
    the
    PPro/PII, which will (hopefully) make it's way into 2.3 someday. On the
    K6
    it is called SYSCALL/SYSRET and Jean Wolter <jw5@os.inf.tu-dresden.de>
    has
    done some work in this area. The bad thing is that it doesn't work on
    the
    older K6 revisions (as mine) :-(

    PS: mingo, if you read this, what's the current status of
    SYSENTER/SYSEXIT ?
