I would like to see a better solution than plain .byte code in kernel code.
'Upgrade as' is not a good option, either.

IMHO the mnemonics should remain there as comments, maybe even with a
'AMD K5 specialty' (was it for the K5? I don't remember) remark.
All .byte opcodes should be commented with at least the mnemonic (and maybe
the CPU that understands it).
