SubjectLinux 2.4.1 thinks my Cyrix 6x86 P166 is a 486-class machine
From
Hello,

Linux 2.4.1 (and 2.4.2-pre1) thinks my Cyrix 6x86 P166+ is a i486-class
machine. (It is a i586-class CPU.) 2.4.0 didn't recognize the
model name; 2.4.1 fixed that, but I guess the cpu family part may need
fixing too.

$ uname -a
Linux lovelife 2.4.2-pre1 #2 Mon Feb 5 21:26:22 MST 2001 i486 unknown

$ cat /proc/cpuinfo
processor : 0
vendor_id : CyrixInstead
cpu family : 4
model : 2
model name : 6x86 2x Core/Bus Clock
stepping : 6
fdiv_bug : no
hlt_bug : no
f00f_bug : no
coma_bug : yes
fpu : yes
fpu_exception : no
cpuid level : -1
wp : yes
flags : cyrix_arr
bogomips : 133.12

I'm running Debian 2.2r2 plus some updated packages on this machine.

Thanks for your help.

Anthony
