This clashes with Andi's "msr-index" patch:

ftp://ftp.firstfloor.org/pub/ak/x86_64/quilt/patches/msr-index

Perhaps it'd be best to wait until msr-index goes upstream and to raise a
patch then. Or to redo and retest against 2.6.21-rc7-mm2, which includes
msr-index.

Also, include/asm-x86_64/processor.h has a getCx86(), too. Does it also
need fixing?
