The VIA is fully ompatible with the intel 686 instruction set, the problem is
that gcc mistakenly used cmov which is an i686 _optional_ instruction without
checking. Thus ".i686" in gcc terms and "686" in intel terms here differ.
The Pentium Pro has the relevant instructions - the big PII addition is
MMX which is not required.
