Initial Nehalem CPU optimizations
movaps/movups are no longer equivalent to their integer equivalents on the Nehalem, so that substitution is removed. Nehalem has a much lower cacheline split penalty than previous Intel CPUs, so cacheline workarounds are no longer necessary. Thanks to Intel for providing Avail Media with the pre-release Nehalem CPU needed to prepare these (and other not-yet-committed) optimizations. Overall speed improvement with Nehalem vs Penryn at the same clock speed is around 40%.
