    This one didn't work for me. It thinks I have a Cx486SLC when
    I don't. I have AMD486. The boot messages looks like this:

    Checking if this processor honours the WP bit even in supervisor mode... Ok.
    Unknown interrupt
    Unknown interrupt
    CPU: Cyrix Cx486SLC
    Checking 386/387 coupling... OK, FPU using exception 16 error reporting.
    Checking 'hlt' instruction... [then it hangs]

    I've never seen this before.
    With 2.1.108 I don't get "Unknown interrupt"s,
    and CPU is identified as 486
