That is the whole point: I'd like to back port the -mtune=generic
change to 4.1 branch. There are so many different IA32/x86-64
processors. The default optimization is more useful than -mtune=xxx.
The new default (-mtune=generic) is much better than the old one for
the current IA32/x86-64 processors.
