    The i810 is a graphics chipset embedded on the memory controller, which
    was designed for the Intel Pentium II, Pentium III, and Celeron CPUs. Page 8
    of the datasheet specifically says:

    Processor/Host Bus Support
    - Optimized for the Intel Pentium II processor, Intel Pentium III processor, and Intel
    CeleronTM processor
    - Supports processor 370-Pin Socket and SC242
    connectors
    - Supports 32-Bit System Bus Addressing
    - 4 deep in-order queue; 4 or 1 deep request queue
    - Supports Uni-processor systems only

    So no need to clean it up for multiprocessor support.
