I guess that rules me out, I only got the AMD manuals :-P

I know you can't trust it too much, but last time I checked oprofile
indicated a lot of time is spent in some more general "parsing" and
comparisons that can't be easily converted to e.g. MMX...
So yes, if somebody knows a code part that could still really benefit from
e.g. MMX please say so, because I didn't see any.
