(x86_64/gcd_1.asm) (it knows the ...w and ...l versions though).
Does Oracle accept 'movzbl'?
Are those horrible bugs that should absolutely be reported to the

We should check the critical processors (K8, K10, Core2, NHM, SBR) for
any slowdowns wrt removing ',pt'. The insn itself might not be
affected, but the alignment on subsequent instructions might result in
