I have added profiles of gcc compiling the Linux/x86 kernel to the
profile output available on:

http://sailboat.acs.uncwil.edu/~jlnance/gcc/gcc.html

It appears that gcc does not do instruction scheduling when generating
x86 code. Can anyone confirm this? This accounts for 8% of the runtime
when compiling on the Alpha. There were several other low level code
generation functions that seemed to take much longer on the Alpha.

In any event, I am still hoping that some one with more in depth knowlege
of gcc can comment on this.
