For those on the list who don't understand Carsten's sense
of humour, I think that was missing a smiley! ;-)
I mean, sure, we'd like to move more people toward SDE,
but "force" is putting it a bit strongly! And if those directives
are really being used unconditionally, I worry that the code
being generated is likewise emitting MIPS32 instructions
that won't work on the "ghost fleet" of abandoned workstations
now running Linux on R4K/R5K CPUs.
