Here are the 64bit SPEC CPU 2K results of -O2 + x86_rep_movl_optimal
vs. -O2.  There are little changes in SPEC CPU 2K FP.  For SPEC CPU 2K

So for 64bit, -O2 + x86_rep_movl_optimal is better than -O2 and
-O2 -mtune=core2 on Core 2 Duo and Nocona. I suspect that we will
see similar trend on Opteron.

Jan, given what we have now, should we turn on x86_rep_movl_optimal
for m_GENERIC64 if it will also improve Opteron? We can always turn it
off when your memory optimization is in.
