    Subject[PATCH] Mention Intel Atom in Kconfig.cpu
    From
    Am I right in thinking that CONFIG_MCORE2 is the correct choice for an 
    Intel Atom? (It seems to work for me, so far.) If this is true, since
    there are quite a lot of these chips in circulation now and the choice
    is not obvious, I think it would be helpful to add something along the
    following lines to arch/x86/Kconfig.cpu.
