(Suggestion to add the "LZCNT" flag to CPU_FLAGS_X86)

Should the CPU_FLAGS suggested on this page include "lzcnt"?
 +
As listed here [1] lzcnt was adopted in Intel Haswell.
  
This is for everybody who might have seen my funtoo setup and liked it!
+
Or is there a special reason that LZCNT was not listed on this page?
This is also for myself to keep track on my system. I have used most of the Linux distributions out there and I am currently most happy with funtoo.
+
My reasons are:
+
# Gentoo/Funtoo is a rolling release distribution, meaning you only have to install it once and update it frequently.
+
# Gentoo/Funtoo is only what you make out of it, no unnesecary rubish like in Ubuntu, OpenSuse or Fedora will be installed by default. In the mean time being aware that Gentoo/Funtoo is for advanced users not careing that much about GUIs for Settings or Configs.
+
# Gentoo/Funtoo runs fast due to multiple reasons. (Compiling your own software,USE-Flags,...)
+
# Philosophy, one would think that Slackware would suite me most (KISS,Unix) but the fact is that these distributions require you more energy and time to work with. I want to get my jobs done, not careing to much about the system. It is okay to have tools that do things for you as long they are designed well - like in funtoo.

==1. Install Funtoo (not complete yet - I will update this part when I install funtoo the next time)==

''Follow the install instructions and setup a minimal system.''http://www.funtoo.org/Funtoo_Linux_Installation
+
 
+
Notice you will need to create/edit some configs in the installation prozess. Here are some of mine customizations:
+
 
+
a) <code>/etc/portage/make.conf</code>:
+
  CFLAGS="-O2 -march=native -pipe -fomit-frame-pointer"
+
  CXXFLAGS="${CFLAGS}"

  # /etc/fstab: static file system information.

  #

  # The root filesystem should have a pass number of either 0 or 1.

  # NOTE: If your BOOT partition is ReiserFS, add the notail option to opts.

for tmpfs see: http://www.funtoo.org/Funtoo_Filesystem_Guide,_Part_3

c) Since I have an encrypted LVM, one needs an initramfs. I prefer the genkernel method.
+
    genkernel --kernel-config=/path/to/your/custom-kernel-config --no-mrproper --makeopts=-j5 --install --lvm --luks all

Should the CPU_FLAGS suggested on this page include "lzcnt"? As listed here [1] lzcnt was adopted in Intel Haswell.

Or is there a special reason that LZCNT was not listed on this page?
