    SubjectRe: Algoritmic Complexity Attacks and 2.4.20 the dcache code

    Considering that the Alpha and the UltraSparc can issue up to 4
    instruction per cycle,

    Ultrasparc only has 2 integer units. So it really can only do 2
    integer operations per cycle. GCC is giving it an optimal schedule
    for -mtune=ultrasparc, I know because I wrote that instruction
    scheduler :-)

    You can get 4 issue if you're doing floating point stuff.

    I believe the current generation Alpha has 3 integer units.
    GCC should be doing a good job there too.
