    It's not x86-specific stuff, it's literally specific to the ISA bridge.

    And I'm pretty sure this horrid test was there at least partly for a
    Transmeta setup that had a non-ALI northbridge together with an ALI
    southbridge. The fact that it _also_ triggers on other machines may well
    be true, though.
