Certain obscure early 6x86 cpus

The Cyrix III is not even derived from the Cyrix processor line. VIA bought
both Cyrix and IDT's Winchip folks. The Cyrix III is the winchip sequel
(newer versions branded as VIA C3 as VIA dumped the cyrix name completely)

I suspect hardware problems. A considerable number of people run Cyrix III
C3 and now also Eden systems on Linux. It works very well.
