We should do some general performance benchmarks with 4.4 vs. 4.7 before
we consider this option. It would be a shame to compromise the whole of
mysqld's performance just to improve SSL performance, as only a small
fraction of users actually make use of SSL and/or the encrypt functions.
I think at this point I'm leaning toward TAOCRYPT_DISABLE_X86ASM on
i386 as the short term fix. If Oracle figures out the ASM issue and
can give us a patch for it soon, then we can apply that, but for now,
this seems the solution that penalizes the fewest users.
