[RC5] rc5-72 completion rate

hi everybody...

how about optimizing the rc5-72 cores for the commonly used cpu's
(athlon and.... the weak performing core of the p4)

:-)

that would reduce the total completition time...

or.. how about finishing the OGR contests? that would add some rc5-72
performance....

sincerely,

thorsten
