Actually, I think I'm seeing some more significant performance gain in
icc vs gcc. I have a few data points collected via FATE. But it also
depends on how we're measuring performance.

If I could ever figure out how to make a graph using a computer, I'm
sure we could see some interesting trends between compilers.
