Actually, the situation is worse. If I remember correctly, it is more
like Pentium 4 or so is the *only* generation that actually uses them as
branch hints and it is explicitly recommendated to avoid for many other
cores. As such, unless there is a really good reason for having this, I
would strongly consider leaving them out...
