When can you commit cpu releated changes in the public tree?

Please advise if I could commit E7501/P62h2/82801EB-R into the v2 now or
after you commit CPU stuffs.

Except for the Opteron init_timer is really not appropriate as a
cpu thing.  In general it is a motherboard type decision.  It is
one of the rough areas in V2 right now.

For the rest you can see why I am in the process of reworking
the cpu initialization code.
