HPA asked about why they used a whitelist instead of a blacklist in . The
answer (in ) was that those are the CPU's that are guaranteed to properly

complained about the AMD detection code having a limit that the Intel
detection code did not. Perhaps changing the 'c->x86 <= 0x11' test in the
X86_VENDOR_AMD block to not exist?

Wouldn't this be better if written the same as the Intel side, ie:
if (c->x86 >= 0xF && (c->x86 == 6 && c->x86_model == 7))
(or even with c->x86_model >= 7 ?)
Dialup is like pissing through a pipette. Slow and excruciatingly painful.
