Posted a patch upstream to fix big-endian for generic tuning. This was a
simple omission from my previous patches.
Merged GCC 4.6.2 to Linaro GCC. It's still in testing now, so I'll have
to commit it sometime over the weekend or next week.
Looked at the benchmark results from Spec2000 running on both A8 and A9
systems, with and with NEON, and with various compiler options. Posted
the results in a spreadsheet (visible within Linaro only).
Begun making adjustments to generic tuning and started new spec2k runs
to see if they are beneficial. First, I'm trying A9 prefetch settings on
A8 to see how much damage it does. Next I'll try enabling the A8 NEON
tuning settings on A9 to see what happens there.
Prepared for travel next week.
