Last time I checked the x86-64 target booted just fne on my Alix APU
board without any custom modifications.

What are the specific problems you encountered?

The naturla place for these kind of optimizations is a subtarget, but
I'd prefer if x86-64 generic stays - well, generic - enough to work on
both desktop machines, vm containers and apu boards.
