Errr, how did we miss this?  Ok, I'm partly to blame for the lack of 
transactional memory in changes.html, but something as big as getting 
rid of reload?!

Would it be preferable to mention IRA in the target specific x86 section 
instead?  I figured it was an important enough change to warrant 
front-page coverage.

Is this OK?
