    OK.  I will not argue with that :)

    My only confusion is why some of these are already included in the linux kernel source today, for example CORE2.  As I stated in my previous email, the two 'new' ones I tested preform as-good-as or better-than the CORE2 which is already included.  Does my confusion make sense?

    Thanks again for the consideration!
