If you read the faq (or even the main page):
"Furthermore, RC5 depends very heavily on the rotate instruction, which
is only directly available on a few platforms as a hardware instruction.
It is currently known that x86, PPC, 68k, and HPPA have hardware rotates,
and the clients for those platforms take advantage of it. Other platforms
such as SGI, Alpha, Sparc, and others do not have a built-in rotate
instruction, and it must be emulated through multiple shifts at a
moderate loss in speed."

I'm curious how you managed to get your rc5 code to be so fast on x86
architectures. Do you try multiple keys at once (thanks to pipelining)?
Or do you just have very efficient code? Thanks.
