Never said that it did, but the reordering does improve performance more for XScale, I would assume that GCC would optimise by (1). Using XScale only instructions where possible *and* (2). Reorder instructions for best performance on XScale. Therefore there could be merit for initially compiling in this way (it would give *more* performance improvement than simply using XScale only instructions alone).

Besides he's now addressed the issue so why continue complaining about it?
