Yes, this is a problem. But isn't it possible to change the
implementation to make several caps depending on others? For example mmx
is only available on i586 and higher.

I currently have problems with the implementation anyway, I can't
disable tls which makes problems on Xen, nor can I disable the usage of
optimized versions for testing of the other versions.
