As does i486 and athlon. It does not seem odd to me; I think it's a
collateral effect of something somewhere in the gcc code which tries to
avoid using 16-bit words on pentiumpro, as it's known that one of the
biggest problems Pentium PRO had was that it was designed with Unix in
mind and ran Windows slow exactly because Windows used 16-bit words all
the time.
