Submit Notes

The config file option 'submit' was used.
taskset was used to bind processes to cores except for 462.libquantum peak

General Notes

 All benchmarks compiled in 32-bit mode except 401.bzip2 and 456.hmmer,
 for peak, are compiled in 64-bit mode
 OMP_NUM_THREADS set to number of processors
 KMP_AFFINITY set to "physical,0"
 KMP_STACKSIZE set to 64M
 Hardware Prefetch Disabled, Adjacent Sector Prefetch Disabled
 'ulimit -s unlimited' was used to set the stack size to unlimited prior to run
