We can argue about that, but I don't think so. I'm comparing a user can
achieve without the patch with the performance they can achieve with the
patch. On all chips, for all time, users have been expected to specify
their target CPU in order to get good performance. It's swell that GCC
4.2 will work better by default on IA32, but that's not a compelling
argument for a backport.
