    No, ccr3 should be restored to protect some registers (or at least bit 4
    should be cleared in ccr3).

    In function set_cx86_inc()
    /* PCR1 -- Performance Control */
    /* Incrementor on, whatever that is */
    setCx86(CX86_PCR1, getCx86(CX86_PCR1) | 0x02);
    /* PCR0 -- Performance Control */
    /* Incrementor Margin 10 */
    setCx86(CX86_PCR0, getCx86(CX86_PCR0) | 0x04);

    This setting is only valid for 200MHz...266MHz CPUs, for 300MHz and 333MHz
    CPUs the Incrementor Margin should be 1-1.

    There is an AppNote about this setting:
    AMD Geode GX1 Processor Memory Timings for Maximum Performance.
