Subjectgcc -O2 vs gcc -Os performance
Compiled the kernel with gcc -O2 (default) vs -Os
(which people sometimes predict will be faster due to better
cache usage). Didn't bother to measure how much time the compile
itself took like that, but the resultant kernels were compared.
Summary ... -Os is a little slower (note system times on kernbench,
SDET and NUMAschedbench I consider within experimental error),
but not drastically. I wouldn't switch to it though ;-)

All done with gcc-2.95.4 (Debian Woody). These machines (16x NUMA-Q) have
700MHz P3 Xeons with 2Mb L2 cache ... -Os might fare better on celeron
with a puny cache if someone wants to try that out.
