Incidentally, in the next release the x86 asm code will have support
for gcc -finstrument-functions, hopefully giving greater accuracy (or
the same accuracy in less time) than traditional prof/gprof.

Obviously there's nothing stopping anyone using any sort of profiling
on just the generic C code, but when that's a lot slower then the asm
code it doesn't make for a very realistic experiment.
