Bad things happen. It doesn't yet check that the cpu id is correct.
I will do that, as soon as I figure out the range of cpu IDs involved.
We should implement a quirk-based system, as done for other device subsystems
like USB, SCSI etc. Such a quirk based system will remove the neccessity
kind of arbitrary kernel options.
Sure, it might take a little longer at boot time but its dynamic and saves
trouble *first time round*.
