I do not specify -O flags for buildworld/buildkernel, but let Makefiles
choose correct ones. `make -V CFLAGS -V CXXFLAGS' at the top of the source
tree shows
-O -pipe -march=pentiumpro
 -O -pipe -march=pentiumpro

As already mentioned in another message, if I compile kern_slaballoc.c
without -march=pentiumpro(by specifying NO_CPU_COPT_FLAGS=yes) and the
kernel boots OK. I've put the assembly outputs at for those who are
