SubjectRe: Intel compiler [Re: Using %cr2 to reference "current"]

Just as another data point - a simple test, I ran intel
compiler on flops v2.

Run 3 ways - gcc3, icc (v 5) and the beta 6 icc. All run
on dual p4 with 1 Gb mem on Rh 7.2

At least on this test the differences are quite dramatic.

Regards,
