now to go a step further; cmov isn't actually a performance gain on any
cpu sold in the last year or two. Why ship the i686 kernel at all over
an i586 kernel? Why not ship ONLY a i586 kernel? I fully agree with the
goal of reducing the number of kernels... and in fact this is an
opportunity again to strike one of the more useless differences..
