Stuff on www.x86.org which is in Appendix H but which also is
available through other means (e.g. via official documentation on
other chips, or through prerelease information, or through intel's
cdrom, ...) wouldn't get Cyrix in trouble.

It would be really interesting if Cyrix included in their engineering
of their next design a publically available suite of code developed to
run quickly on high-end intel platforms. [Say..., perhaps... Linux.]

Please followup to linux-offtopic@binary9.net.
