	Hello Craig,

	I have a little objection to this patch.  We need a way of
	disabling SSE/SSE2 instructions.  I have seen a lot of 				performance 
lose on VMWare 3.2 and also 4, which apparently, is
	supposed to emulate SSE instructions better, but it doesn't. :)

	If we can do it like 5.x, and add a CPU_DISABLE_SSE option, it
	will be much better, IMHO. :-)
