In fact almost all the changes are done by Richard so I wanted to
provide him the possiblity to see which patch worked.  But I certainly
can update my patch based on what is checked in.

The problem is a different.  If you configure your gcc for
i686-linux-gnu and than later want to use the new gcc like this:

	gcc -mpentium

the problem is that __i686__ still is defined.  This is wrong since
now __i586__ (and __i386__) must be defined.  In headers I want to use

	#ifdef __i686__
	some asm using i686 opcodes
	boring old i386 code

which is impossible with the current specs files (unless you
explicitly use -u__i686__).
