TonyStill: The Chox highly advocates actually testing to see if things are faster or not - or at least he certainly does when somebody else tries to demonstrate something. As I had previously said, making GCC emit XScale-only instructions a) is more effort, and b) saves less than a thousandth of a second on the Iyonix. Premature optimisating is very very bad, and The Chox knows this. The more heavily you optimise, the more difficult it is to track down bugs.
