Does using -march-c3 make any noticable performance difference? 

I just use standard debian packages (which afaik will work on an

I have a disk and haven't see any issues. How might they manifest themselves?

The only stability problem I've had was lockups caused by the longhaul
cpufreq module, since I've stopped using that it seems pretty solid.
