1) all delays will be wrong if you use set6x86 after boot, because
bogomips will have slower value. This is fatal.
2) it is needed for proper CPU detection.
3) I thought that it was you who found 6x86MX oopsing in
fast_get_timer(). To workaround this you need CPU detection, which is
main part of Cyrix patches.
