    The dual core NUMA parsing problem could be probably fixed. I personally
    have no plans to work on it though, since the ACPI method works fine.

    Feel free to submit patches.

    However with 90+W CPUs I would strongly recommend having support
    for PowerNow! and the old style PST table doesn't support
    dual core or SMP, so you need ACPI for that anyways.
