SubjectRe: [PATCH] expand micro-optimizations in kernel to newer model CPUs
Hello,

this patch is used in Gentoo geek-sources and mptcp-sources (and
probably in lot other kernel sources sets). So, there was lot testing.

It's not _big_ performance difference, but -mtune=native is nice to
have.
It could be great, if this kernel option could be fully utilized without
need of additional patching.

Thank for your work guys.

Cheers,
David
