I read the source for kernel 2.6.24 and found that it uses similar
technic for CPUID detection. I've copied to one simple test program
(attached) and I worried why it doesn't work on Vortex correcty:

$ ./cpuid
This CPU has CPUID opcode
Illegal instruction

> Any ideas?  Would anyone be so kind and compare it to the Linux code?
