[PATCH] [4/66] x86-64: Use -mtune=generic for generic kernels



The upcomming gcc 4.2 got a new option -mtune=generic to tune
code for both common AMD and Intel CPUs. Use this option
when available for generic kernels.

On x86-64 it is used with CONFIG_GENERIC_CPU. On i386 it is 
enabled with CONFIG_X86_GENERIC.  It won't affect the base
line CPU support in any ways and also not the minimum supported CPU.
