Good point.. interesting question how you could check that too..
perhaps for multi-CPU systems you'd want to insert random length
delay loops (instead of context switches) or something. A context
swith would probably result in indirect flushing of the CPU state
anwyay, effectively the same as a barrier between every instruction.
