General Notes

Environment variables set by runspec before the start of the run:
LD_LIBRARY_PATH = "/root/SPECcpu12.1/smartheap:/root/SPECcpu12.1/ic12.1-libs/ia32/:/root/SPECcpu12.1/ic12.1-libs/intel64"

 Binaries compiled on a system with 1x Core i7-860 CPU + 8GB
 memory using RHEL5.5 with binutils-2.17.50.0.6-14.el5
 Stack size set to unlimited using "ulimit -s unlimited"
 Transparent Huge Pages enabled with:
 echo always > /sys/kernel/mm/redhat_transparent_hugepage/enabled
 Filesystem page cache cleared with:
 echo 1>       /proc/sys/vm/drop_caches
 runspec command invoked through numactl i.e.:
 numactl --interleave=all runspec <etc>
