> x86: fix "kernel won't boot on a Cyrix MediaGXm (Geode)"
I know that it was connected with the Geode booting, but I read the cyrix.c file and most paths are Geode specific and I won't be able to test them. I tested that reverting the commit 026e2c0 ("x86, cyrix: debug") does not break anything on 6x86MX cpu.
If the tip/master is a correct tree, please revert the commit 026e2c0 in the linux-next and drop this patch. This way everything is correct.
