Ok, there is a difference in how the BIOS sets bit 28. But this version
of the fix should take care of both cases as it works on my machine too.
You could also add this hunk to your patch:

so that we get rid of that simulated CPUID flag completely and use
c1e_detected only.

I'll test it on my other AMD boxes to make sure we don't regress on
older machines...

Thanks.
