It is a 2-way pipeline, but you can get 3-way in certain circumstances
if one of the instructions is a store.  My Sparc-T4 pipeline description
in the GCC sparc backend shows how it works.

I have an add_n implementation and at 2-way unrolling it runs at 3.5
cycles per limb.

BTW are you going to get me the necessary paperwork so that I can
have all of this work I'm doing installed at some point?

[PATCH] Optimize mpn_add_N for sparc T3 and later.
