Then bug fixes should be submitted with testcases separately from
the performance change for Power 6.

We are working hard to make sure that gcc won't getting worse on
x86 :-(.

There is more volatileness in x86 performance numbers already than the predicted change by this. For example I see both leslie3d and GemmsFDTD dropped 30% / 20% around Jul 5th. I would rather wait for a quieter period to analyze the cummulative effect of all the changes we piled up. Fixing them afterwards is probably better than trying to block changes that cannot definitely explain the seen change.
