Doesnt the ? mean that it should be set if it is not set yet? I can give
it a try to this, next time I build world however I dont think that it
will compile loader without cputype athlon-xp set so...
I just thought that loader doesnt need to be so optimized anyhow. It is
more important that it loads at boot and there are people on this list
who has problems with the optimizations and I found some more on google.

But of course I dont care so much after all I learned to live with it.
