Right. It is not so much that the CPU doesn't exist as I initially
thought (and couldn't really believe that it could happen), but rather
that the CPU may have failed to come up (which is slightly more likely).

Well spotted. Would you mind respinning it with a commit message that
outlines the condition under which this can happen? I'll the take it as
a fix post -rc1.

Thanks,

M.
