Cyrix/IBM 5x86/6x86 CPU configuration tool
Allows one to modify the internal configuration registers in
the 5x86 and 6x86 CPU. These include specifying non-cacheable
memory areas (important for e.g. graphics cards), I/O delays,
cache write policy (WB/WT), write-gathering, and also enable an
automatic standby mode where a CPU "halt" instruction cuts down
power by a factor of 70 (from 20 Watts to 0.3 Watts for the
6x86 P133+) when the CPU is idle. Especially the CPU power
reduction cuts down on most temperature-related problems on
set6x86 / get6x86 / 6x86_reg

Set6x86 and get6x86 are two programs that allow you to poke and peek into
the Cyrix/IBM/SGS-Thomson 6x86 CPU's configuration registers. 6x86_reg will
display register contents in human-read

- 6x86_reg now also displays two bogoMIPS readings: the kernel-calculated
bogomips from/proc/cpuinfo, and an independently-calculated bogomips reading.
- Note that bogoMIPS are *NOT* a benchmark or a test for CPU performance; they
are just a very good indicator of whether the BIOS has correctly configured
the 6x86 registers and the L2 cache/chipset timing parameters.
