    Brian Gerst had a patch a few months back to introduce a CONFIG_F00F
    if a relevant CONFIG_Mxxx was chosen[1]. It never got applied anywhere, but makes
    more sense than the CONFIG_M686 we currently use.

    [1] 386/486/586. With addition of my Vendor choice menu, we could even further
    narrow it down to Intel only.
