No, the /proc/cpuinfo information is wrong, but I'm working on fixing
that. Another thing is that the Cyrix has a bunch of configuration
registers that are interesting. The biggest win seems to be that the
Cyrix supports a low-power halt that reduces the power draw by an order of
magnitude. The CPU disspates 22 watts maximum and runs quite hot.
Turning on the low-power halt makes the processor run _extremely_ cool.
I'm almost finished with a utility for manipulating these control
registers.
