Is i686 the minimum required for HotSpot on x86?

It would be nice to have call stack trace. I looked on attached hs_er* files and non of them has it. JIT (Client VM) 
should not emit cmov instruction if it is not supported. Also there was suggestion in the report about running with 
-Xint, did it help? I surprise someone still try to run Hotspot on i586 ;) I can't even find P4 around here. And we 
definitely do not test on such machine (i586) so it is not supported.
