This should be timed on a PA-RISC 2.0 machine, just in case. Some of
them are really good at apparently doing things twice as fast as you'd
Our K460 gets twice the MIPs you'd expect ... i.e., it executes a simple
timing loop at about 360 million instructions per second ...
on a single CPU machine with a 180 MHz clock!
