AFAICS, the patch was approved by Richard on 23. September. None of
the target maintainers have had any further objections to it.

Regarding the TODO in i386.c: some options depend on and enable other
options, for example -msse3 enables SSE2, etc, although user didn't
explicitly add -msse2 to the options. This is not the case with global
options. Since this field is used extensively through i386.c, I'd say
to play safe and save it.

So, x86 part is OK with the above change. Middle end is already
approved and rs6000 maintainer didn't object the approval, so please
go ahead and commit the patch.
