I think adding -mtune=native will be fine so long as there are no test
regressions. Otherwise, Greg's suggestion of -mtune=generic seems very
safe. Like Bruce said, I think it needs to be made clear that these
additions for glibc are only to clear the i386 hurdle and restore a
sane level of CPU tuning. They aren't just random optimizations. I
don't think the Ch. 6 Intro needs to be changed as long as the glibc
page is clear.
