...Having looked at the threading-performance info on your
website a bit...
Tell me whether I understand the Pentium indirect-threading performance
penalty which you documented in 1995: An I-cache miss causes cache
invalidation for *both* I- and D-caches, which means that with a "normal"
(unoptimised) indirect-thread implementation each cache would be
invalidated, flushed and filled twice for *each and every* thread "jump".
Do I have that right? This was only on the original Pentium?
Thanks...Nick G, who once wrote an indirect-threaded Forth 79
interpreter for the IBM/370 running VM/CMS ;-)
