% Is this correct?  Is anyone considering 6x86MX and K6 optimizations? 
% It seems like the K6's are really slow for their clock speed.  Can
% anyone confirm whether or not they have a rotate instruction?  It has
% been speculated that they might not, but no one was able to
% confirm/deny this with authority.  Just curious, especially about the
% 6x86MX optimization.  Besides better branch prediction and a larger
% (64k) L1 cache, is it that much different from the 6x86?.

Of course they have a rotate instruction.  it is an x86 chip, therefor
it can execute all the x86 instructions.
