Overall the binaries are ~0.5% smaller.

Let's call it compile time neutral.
- For SPECint there is a 5% win for twolf, all other benchmarks are
- For SPECfp there is a 30% improvement for mgrid (!), and 6% for mesa.
The rest is in the noise (within 0.4%).
Very good data.
The results for i686 are more mixed, but overall still better with the
patch (peak) than without. gap failed to build and vortex miscompared,
I'm not sure why.
Do those failures occur without your patch? If so, then we can overlook
them; if not, then we cannot include your patch until the problems are
Assuming that these failures do indeed occur without your patch, then
you have proven that your patch is an improvement to my satisfaction,
and I have no objection to including the patch.
