I was asked on IRC to add support for non-Intel and AMD CPUs to the kernel.
Obviously I can't do that -- but I mentioned that some special "magic
tricks" need to be done to enable support for the instruction on other
CPUs, which is why I made the kernel bugcheck.
Thankfully, someone documented the steps required, so I won't get in
trouble for pointing out this link for you:
I can confirm that's what the kernel does. Do that too, and you can
then support Transmeta/Rise/VIA CPUs.
