+ and disable MAPEN in set_mtrr_done().
+ 19990205 Richard Gooch <rgooch@atnf.csiro.au>
+ Minor cleanups.
+ v1.30
+ 19990208 Zoltán Böszörményi <zboszor@mail.externet.hu>
+ Protect plain 6x86s (and other processors without the
+ Page Global Enable feature) against accessing CR4 in
+ set_mtrr_prepare() and set_mtrr_done().
+ 19990210 Richard Gooch <rgooch@atnf.csiro.au>
+ Turned <set_mtrr_up> and <get_mtrr> into function pointers.
+ v1.31
+ 19990212 Zoltán Böszörményi <zboszor@mail.externet.hu>
+ Major rewrite of cyrix_arr_init(): do not touch ARRs,
+ leave them as the BIOS have set them up.
+ Enable usage of all 8 ARRs.
+ Avoid multiplications by 3 everywhere and other
+ code clean ups/speed ups.
+ 19990213 Zoltán Böszörményi <zboszor@mail.externet.hu>
+ Set up other Cyrix processors identical to the boot cpu.
+ Since Cyrix don't support Intel APIC, this is l'art pour l'art.
+ Weigh ARRs by size:
+ If size <= 32M is given, set up ARR# we were given.
+ If size > 32M is given, set up ARR7 only if it is free,
+ fail otherwise.
+ 19990214 Zoltán Böszörményi <zboszor@mail.externet.hu>
+ Also check for size >= 256K if we are to set up ARR7,
+ mtrr_add() returns the value it gets from set_mtrr()
+ 19990218 Zoltán Böszörményi <zboszor@mail.externet.hu>
+ Remove Cyrix "coma bug" workaround from here.
+ Moved to linux/arch/i386/kernel/setup.c and
+ linux/include/asm-i386/bugs.h
+ 19990228 Richard Gooch <rgooch@atnf.csiro.au>
+ Added MTRRIOC_KILL_ENTRY ioctl(2)
+ Trap for counter underflow in <mtrr_file_del>.
+ Trap for 4 MiB aligned regions for PPro, stepping <= 7.
+ 19990301 Richard Gooch <rgooch@atnf.csiro.au>
+ Created <get_free_region> hook.
+ 19990305 Richard Gooch <rgooch@atnf.csiro.au>
+ Temporarily disable AMD support now MTRR capability flag is set.
+ v1.32
+ 19990308 Zoltán Böszörményi <zboszor@mail.externet.hu>
+ Adjust my changes (19990212-19990218) to Richard Gooch's
+ latest changes. (19990228-19990305)
+ v1.33
+ 19990309 Richard Gooch <rgooch@atnf.csiro.au>
+ Fixed typo in <printk> message.
+ 19990310 Richard Gooch <rgooch@atnf.csiro.au>
+ Support K6-II/III based on Alan Cox's <alan@redhat.com> patches.
+ v1.34
+ 19990511 Bart Hartgers <bart@etpmod.phys.tue.nl>
+ Support Centaur C6 MCR's.
+ 19990512 Richard Gooch <rgooch@atnf.csiro.au>
+ Minor cleanups.
+ v1.35
+ 19990707 Zoltán Böszörményi <zboszor@mail.externet.hu>
+ Check whether ARR3 is protected in cyrix_get_free_region()
+ and mtrr_del(). The code won't attempt to delete or change it
+ from now on if the BIOS protected ARR3. It silently skips ARR3
+ in cyrix_get_free_region() or returns with an error code from
+ mtrr_del().
+ 19990711 Zoltán Böszörményi <zboszor@mail.externet.hu>
+ Reset some bits in the CCRs in cyrix_arr_init() to disable SMM
+ if ARR3 isn't protected. This is needed because if SMM is active
+ and ARR3 isn't protected then deleting and setting ARR3 again
+ may lock up the processor. With SMM entirely disabled, it does
+ not happen.
+ 19990812 Zoltán Böszörményi <zboszor@mail.externet.hu>
+ Rearrange switch() statements so the driver accomodates to
+ the fact that the AMD Athlon handles its MTRRs the same way
+ as Intel does.
+ 19990814 Zoltán Böszörményi <zboszor@mail.externet.hu>
+ Double check for Intel in mtrr_add()'s big switch() because
+ that revision check is only valid for Intel CPUs.
+ 19990819 Alan Cox <alan@redhat.com>
+ Tested Zoltan's changes on a pre production Athlon - 100%
+ success.
+ 19991008 Manfred Spraul <manfreds@colorfullife.com>
+ replaced spin_lock_reschedule() with a normal semaphore.
+ v1.36
+ 20000221 Richard Gooch <rgooch@atnf.csiro.au>
+ Compile fix if procfs and devfs not enabled.
+ Formatting changes.
+ v1.37
+ 20001109 H. Peter Anvin <hpa@zytor.com>
+ Use the new centralized CPU feature detects.
+
+ v1.38
+ 20010309 Dave Jones <davej@suse.de>
+ Add support for Cyrix III.
+
+ v1.39
+ 20010312 Dave Jones <davej@suse.de>
+ Ugh, I broke AMD support.
+ Reworked fix by Troels Walsted Hansen <troels@thule.no>
+
+ v1.40
+ 20010327 Dave Jones <davej@suse.de>
+ Adapted Cyrix III support to include VIA C3.
+
+ v2.0
+ 20020306 Patrick Mochel <mochel@osdl.org>
+ Split mtrr.c -> mtrr/*.c
+ Converted to Linux Kernel Coding Style
+ Fixed several minor nits in form
+ Moved some SMP-only functions out, so they can be used
+ for power management in the future.
+ TODO: Fix user interface cruft.
