I think that is exactly what we want, although I don't know how that is
separate from the patch you sent.  My original comment was the patch
fixes the problem for only one of the cpu cores, not all of them.  Which
then led into the subsequent suggestion of making the biarch work
like the past compilers, and we must specific the flags for POWER4
instead of the other way around.  Without explicit -mcpu flags, the
existing compiler behavior is just fine .....  but, I guess I'd be 
in the way of progress to want this :-)
