Optimize libc

I am doing research on software optimization. I have made comparisons of different compilers and function libraries. My tests show that gcc is one of the best optimizing compilers for x86 and x86-64 platforms, but libc is one of the poorest optimized function libraries. I would recommend that somebody work on making libc faster on x86 and x86-64. This would include:


I don't have the time to work on Gnu projects myself, but I have provided a number of useful resourses:

You are welcome to use my code in libc. Contact me for the necessary copyright assignments etc. (I will not help you with your private projects, though). Find my Email address at my homepage.
