    No, it won't break. I tried this patch on an Athlon 1300 Mhz 200 FSB,
    that has worked with athlon optimizzed kernels without any problems, and
    it still works. I did this just for curiosity, and i was
    avoiding to post a long series of it works for me too, since I have just
    abit MBs, and before the patch was out I just putted a working bios on
    every MB. Anyway I tried the patch on working Athlon.

    And let's try to get VIA to tell us what is going on....
