I'm stilling reading The "Software Optimization Guide for AMD Athlon64
and Opteron" and the disassembly output of latest GCC snapshot to see
if we are on the right way.  No benchmarks has been done yet, but I
will at least test it on Athlon64 tonight to get some numbers, and
if I can arrange a test on our Opteron box at company, I will do some
benchmarks there, too.

BTW.  Would you please give me some hints on the benchmarking?  I am
not sure whether just looping the test cases on some determine dataset
would be enough?
