Default New patch for add support "-a" options and one stage.

Coming from somebody who has done only a fraction of the maverick
hacking that Martin Guy has done
(martinwguy.co.uk/martin/tech/Maverick/) I can safely say that as of
right now, maverick is definitely NOT stable, and I would NOT include
this patch in any release.

Martin has been doing an incredible amount of work, and the maverick
co-processor patches are actually coming close to the point of being
ready.

Right now it works 'correctly' aside from disabling the 64-bit code generation.

He's tested it with Paranoia, the GCC testsuite, the OpenSSL testsuite
and now FFTW.

It's very close, but because of some long-standing issues (I would say
poor hardware design was one of them), the speedup is not as dramatic
as one would hope, due to the necessity for multi-process data
integrity.
