Re: 4.4: march-native gives -mno-sse4, but cpuinfo sse4_1

This question is more appropriate for the mailing
list.  Please take any followups to gcc-help.  Thanks.

In gcc, -msse4 implies both SSE4.1 and SSE4.2.  Since your processor
does not support both, -mno-sse4 is in effect.

Actually, at present gcc does not consider any processor to support
SSE4.1 or SSE4.2 by default.  You always have to select them explicitly.
This seems to be a bug.  I would encourage you to open a bug report, if
there isn't already one about this; see .
