Subject: [TuxOnIce-devel] "How to Slow Down Your Computer Needlessly", a guide :)

For some reason, I thought the Intel 760 processor ("Dothan" technology,
2.0GHz speed, 533MHz FSB) was a Pentium 4 architecture, so when building
my kernels, would select CONFIG_MPENTIUM4. Performance, esp. on multi-
threaded applications, seemed sluggish.

Turns out that this chip's merely a Pentium M (CONFIG_MPENTIUMM), 
so the calculations to determine the cache-line size in the memory-management
routines (and other places) was off by a factor of two larger so I was no doubt 
getting cacheline misses some 50% of the time- not to mention the kernel 
was using P4 optimizations (and maybe even instructions but I never 
got BUG()s/OOPSes) on a P3-arch CPU.

The machine is visibly more responsive now. I'd been running that 
way for probably over a year.
