Unlike i386, but catering to ev4 Alpha's; we strongly pessimize modern
ones.  I would almost suggest we default to ev56.. but do see enough
pre-ev56 people email the Alpha list that I know we shouldn't.

-mtune still uses only instructions at the mcpu level, but the scheduler
uses mtune's CPU's preferences.

While I do my own world builds, I like to use packages.  Would be nice if
we had > ev4 versions of them.

CPUTUNE is a wild-ass idea; and maybe it isn't ready to go in.
