Hmm, my one is old good K6. Anyway I guess I will implement the simple fp
library for it.
I was just hoping that it will not be required (fewer code = easier maintenance)
and my profiles, both -Q and oprof looked good at Athlon.
Note that the propagation is, by nature, relatively expensive, as it is global
analysis of the CFG. The algorithm used is fast and I consider 2% to be not
too bad, but 0.5% is better :)

Perhaps we can try to use rdts on i386 machines, as -Q is definitly usefull
tool and should work.
