the core duo is a pentium-m (well, a pair of p-m). it's just a branding
change at this point (an annoying brand name too)... future "core2" have a
different microarchitecture but i'd still choose pentium-m for early
kernels on those too... until someone finds some reason to differentiate
core2.

you can see it's even the same family as pentium-m... see
<http://sandpile.org/ia32/cpuid.htm> and search for "Intel P6-core" to see
all the related models in family 6.
