SubjectRAID5 checksum algorithm selection
	Hello, world!\n

I've tested RAID-5 on my new dual athlon box, and got the
following messages during system boot:

raid5: measuring checksumming speed
8regs : 2550.400 MB/sec
32regs : 1702.000 MB/sec
pIII_sse : 4735.600 MB/sec
pII_mmx : 3910.800 MB/sec
p5_mmx : 5016.800 MB/sec
raid5: using function: pIII_sse (4735.600 MB/sec)

Why does the kernel decide to use the pIII_sse function,
even though the p5_mmx is faster?

The kernel is 2.4.20-pre5-ac1.
