No, it does not.  It merely fails to fix it ;)

These two things don't require combination though, right?  Like one
thing disables the SSE check whereas the other fixes a mostly unrelated
issue, am I correct?

I'd like the comment about the "-march=whatever" thing to be closer to
the setenvs, also if GCC does not require it there ought to be a TODO
or XXX stating that it should be removed on core-updates-frozen.

Otherwise LGTM, cheers!
