There seems to be a (surprising?) difference between AthlonXP model 6 and
model 8:

processor : 0
vendor_id : AuthenticAMD
cpu family : 6
model : 8
model name : AMD Athlon(tm) XP 1700+
stepping : 0

empty overhead=16 cycles
load overhead=1 cycles
I$ load overhead=2 cycles
I$ load overhead=1 cycles
I$ store overhead=81 cycles
