Running GCC 4.9 On AMD's AM1 Kabini With Jaguar Cores

Using the AMD Athlon 5350 AM1 APU with its four "Jaguar" cores operating at 2.05GHz, I ran some benchmarks from Ubuntu 14.04 Linux comparing the performance of binaries compiled under GCC 4.8.2 and this week's GCC 4.9.0 RC1. Is GCC 4.9 better able to exploit the potential out of AMD's Jaguar microarchitecture? Let's see.
