Sorry, but before you continue with all this, ehrm, wrongness, would you
please first check what you are talking about? Can you give us a single
example of such a cpu? No cpu linux runs on has this property, btw.

The reason nobody wants to talk reasonable with you is that most of what
you claim is simply that: wrong. People cannot trust what you say when
they cna trivialy verify most of you claims as wrong. If you would only
give the points that _are_ true, then people will be much more open in
discussing optimizations.

Again, not on any cpu that linux runs on.

How can we trust you if most of the easily-verifiable claims of yourself
are simply untrue?

*please* this is not a with-hunt. *please* re-adjust your attitude. when so
many people tell you that you are wrong you could at least check wether tzhis
is true.
