Is there any workaround of this?
Will using any of the new -mmx/sse/3dnow help?
For calculation intensive code that has to use 64-bit integers, this is
a real killer. It makes gcc unusable. Making a custom 64-bit integer
class, with two 32-bit integers, probably won't help performance.
Any good ideas? I could use the Intel compiler for now, but I'd really
like to use gcc, and this problem doesn't sound it will be solved any
