Ah, an interesting problem.

Sorry I don't quite parse that sentence.

Interesting looking at this code are you working with C0 stepping Opterons?

Looking. It is your romcc options. By default romcc will not use mmx
or sse registers unless you tell it that you have them. I have been
doing this with -mcpu=k8. The register pressure is much less when you
have 24 registers to work with instead of just 8.

Yep, an interesting way of doing it.

Ron, Stefan. Could one of you help with merging Yinghai's code? I
might have time, but I don't think I will manage it before I leave
for OLS on Tuesday.
