WL#1007: Check GCC profiling based branch prediction
Affects: Benchmarks-3.0 — Status: Assigned — Priority: Low
GCC 3 has an option -fbranch-probabilities which allows to use jump usage statistics for jump optimization. This could possibly give good bit of performance. We need to check this and advice Lenz how to add this to distribution build process if it gives any benefit. Other new optimization options which we could possibly benefit shall also be scanned.
