SubjectRe: GCC3.0 Produce REALLY slower code!
Date
Although I just wanna say that there is no reason trying compile kernel with
new shiny GCC 3.0 ;-). The result will be in kernel slowdown.

Maybe, we can try to use Intel C compiler for some important ;-) (beta
version work with linux).

Best regards,
