    Be careful that some G4's have a bug which can cause a
    perf monitor interrupt to crash your kernel :( Basically, the
    problem is if any of TAU or PerfMon interrupt happens at the
    same time as a DEC interrupt, some revs of the CPU can get
    confused and lose the previous exception state.

    Check out the erratas, but it may be worth adding a cputable
    feature bit entry to note which models have useable interrupt
    and which don't.
