That's true.

I posted this on Fri 10/25/2002:
============================================================================
The following are the lmbench results (P3 and P4P) we tried to get. The kernels built by gcc 3.2 were not stable for P4P, so we used an older version of gcc.

p70 -- the kernel built by just with the -O2 optimization (Intel compiler 7.0)
pgoipo -- P70 + PGO (profile-guided optimization) + IPO (interprocedural optimization)
inline -- pgoipo + forced inline
gcc32 -- gcc 3.2
gcc30 -- gcc 3.02

BTW do you have any benchmark / code size results to share with
Intel compiler vs gcc 3.2 ? How much does it give ?
