if anyone out there has a copy of a version of the  v2 repo that can 
build a working via epia, hopefully recent, I'm willing to work with that.

Current problem, btw, is that the via epia samuel 2 cpu hangs up in the 
mtrr init code. I suspect someone updated that, for -m or -m2,  in such 
a way that it broke older cpus.

if I comment out mtrr init, i.e.

Index: src/cpu/via/model_centaur/model_centaur_init.c
--- src/cpu/via/model_centaur/model_centaur_init.c      (revision 2158)

-       x86_setup_mtrrs(36);
+//     x86_setup_mtrrs(36);

         /* Enable the local cpu apics */

then it will come up -- with no working cache. And the enet problem then 

I could use some help and perspetive here. I know some of you have epias 
-- could you take a look?

But I have other, newer things to do, and fixing an old CPU just can not 
take priority. Sorry.
