"Your patches" is something quite unclear :-)
Which are the patch sets you are comparing?
And on 32 or 64 bits? But does Yonah supports 64bits? IIRC no, but I'm
not sure.
I would be surprised from slowdowns for restore-old-oparg-load.diff,
really surprised.
And I would be just surprised by slowdowns on
Also, about ICC output, we still need to ensure that it's properly
compiled (see above the instructions for counting "jmp *" or similar).
In the measurements above, ICC did miscompile the patch with the switch.
By "properly compiled" I mean that separate indirect branches are
generated, instead of just one.

Not really - at the very least we should listen to results on Pentium 4,
Core (i.e. Yonah) and Core 2, and I would also add Pentium3/Pentium M to
represent the P6 family.
Anyway, I have to do my benchmarks on this, I hope this weekend I'll
have time.
