Well what I am really interested in is whether or not higher levels of
optimization are more reliable now than before. Previously we have been
warned against using many of the CPU specific optimizations, especially
for the pentium 4, and the release notes offer little to support any
conclusions... So without digging through mountains of GCC mailing list
archives... Are these optimizations SAFER now?
