All right, let's try again.  My guess is that this, and also the
BRANCH_COST patch, are beneficial on other OSs.  However, I have
no way to demonstrate that, and I'm sure if I'd put these in
rs6000.h somebody would have required evidence of it.  My best
suggestion is that somebody with interest in performance, and
a non-Darwin ppc system, try putting these in rs6000.h and
see what happens.
