    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.


    I'm really Pavel
    Look at ;-).
