590 is a variation of MCP55, sometimes called MCP55XE it seems. I
would guess that the mcp55 code in the tree works. The revF CPUs
are also supported. It might be really easy to create a port if ASUS
haven't made strange things on the board.

No, this is a software feature of the factory BIOS.

Certainly, but it will need some work. If you want to make a go at it
I suggest to copy one of the mcp55 boards and try it out. If you're
really lucky most things will work immediately. :)
