Good point !
Same here, only 2 of them won't work on C3 (the first ones) :

  7e3a7c:       0f 4d 45 c8             cmovge -0x38(%ebp),%eax
  7e3b4d:       0f 4d 45 c8             cmovge -0x38(%ebp),%eax
  7e97b3:       0f 4c c2                cmovl  %edx,%eax
  7e9823:       0f 4c c2                cmovl  %edx,%eax
  7eb884:       0f 4c c2                cmovl  %edx,%eax
  7eb91d:       0f 4c c2                cmovl  %edx,%eax
  8095d7:       0f 42 ca                cmovb  %edx,%ecx
  80997a:       0f 42 ca                cmovb  %edx,%ecx
  809a4a:       0f 42 ca                cmovb  %edx,%ecx
  80a5cb:       0f 42 ca                cmovb  %edx,%ecx

clearly worth emulating in my opinion.
