Thank you very much for your feedback Andreas.
With your help we could try to understand the following: RTH patch 
affects negatively SPEC runs (*) for a PEAK setup identical to that 
which you currently use *but* with -funroll-loops (instead of 
-funroll-all-loops) or not? In the process, we could also understand 
more of the issue itself -funroll-all-loops vs. -funroll-loops.
Therefore, if you agree, this is the patch which should be tentatively 


(*) When I say "affect negatively" I really mean the following: there is 
a good amount of evidence that due to that patch the following tests 
loose many points: 164.gzip, 186.crafty, 200.sixtrack.
