[Libre-soc-dev] high performance

I was thinking, when we build the final quad core processor, I think it'd
be a really good idea to make 1 of the 4 cores be much better at
single-threaded tasks:
I'm thinking something like fetching 128-bit chunks and decoding and
issuing 3-4 instructions per clock cycle. We should mostly have the
execution hardware needed already since it's needed for vector tasks, so
all we'd have to do is make the frontend wider.

Maybe we could compete with the Intel Core 2 or Cortex A72 in
single-threaded tasks :)
