Mind trying it with the "HAVE_FXSR" and "HAVE_XMM" macros in


fixed? They _should_ be just

#define HAVE_FXSR (cpu_has_fxsr)
#define HAVE_XMM (cpu_has_xmm)

instead of testing random bits in CR4 that have different meaning on
different CPU's.

I'm surprised actually - the same CR4 tests are in newer 2.2.x kernels,
I think. (And in 2.2.x kernels, the above "cpu_has_xxx" do _not_ work
unless FP exception testing etc has been fixed in the 2.2.x tree)
