[olug] Kernel Compilation

Okay, yes, I do know how to compile a kernel, thank you very much. :)

However, my question: is it possible or even advisable to use processor
optimizations when compiling a kernel?

I ask this because, frankly, Im one of those geeks who likes to wring
the last ergs of performance out of my machine.  If I have a P3
processor, why shouldnt my stuff be optimizaed for it (even if I only
gain 10% or so?).

What do you guys think?
