Since when were there family 4 Celerons ?

Though a 486 with 128K cache is also unlikely.
(Although some of the wierd overdrives had such added fun iirc)

Which older kernel detected this ?

This is really bizarre, as there are cpuid capable 486s with the
family/vendor IDs reported above. I do hope we don't have to add
more cachesize checking. That part of setup.c is ugly enough

Can you open up and find out if it really is a Celeron in that box
before such code gets added ?
