  Note that ultrasparc T4 should be less ridiculous, in particular
  thanks to new instructions (add with 64bit carry, mulhi). However,
  silly Oracle refuses to document those, too bad for them...

They are still flogging "RSA accelerator" PCI cards perhaps?  (I never
figured out what "special hardware" they used.  Probably a x86
processor.)  :-)
