Building the Linux kernel...

Building the Linux kernel...

Hi,

I would like to know if someone has attempted to build the Linux kernel lately with ICC and optimize it with SIMD instructions since April 2004 when ingo@pyrillion.org has released some patches and has published some steps in order to build the kernel.

Furthermore, has anyone tried to compile the glibc >= 2.3.0 with ICC and optimize it for P4?

Thank you.

P.S. I have read some other posts saying about successfully building the 2.6.9 kernel in October 2004.
