D - Linux and std.intrinsic

Hi,

Since I've seen that the intrinsic functions could "result in some surprising
speedups", I've been trying to replace some math functions with intrinsic ones
(like cos and sqrt).
However, at compile time dmd says that these functions do not exists and indeed,
intrinsic.d doesn't mention these at all.

First of all, did I forgot something obvious ? :)

Else, would these functions (cos and sqrt) be really faster than math's ones ?
And if yes, are you really sure I can't use them ? :)

Thanks.

Just use the std.math ones, and the compiler will make 'intrinsic' the ones that should be.
