Cyrix (IBM actually) 6x86 P150+ overclocked to a P166+. Currently kernel
2.1.17 + Cyrix patch (adjusted to patch cleanly to 2.1.17). Every Cyrix
option enabled, including power down on halt and VSPM. The motherboard is
a Triton II VX board. Works without flaw. Haven't had a single problem at
all, even overclocked. Here's my /proc/cpuinfo for chip info.

processor : 0
cpu : 586
model : 6x86 2x Core/Bus Clock
vendor_id : CyrixInstead
stepping : 1 rev 7
fdiv_bug : no
hlt_bug : no
fpu : yes
fpu_exception : yes
cpuid : yes
wp : yes
flags : fpu
bogomips : 133.53
