Yes this is OK. Second is just for illustration. The LB should construct the 
bytecode of the second patch in runtime, because the content must be changed 
when processor is changed.

This code in second patch should be placed as "external symbols" in SSDT table. 
Putting them into the DSDT will work, but user is forced to grab correct values 
specific for his/her processor. This patch is for Opteron 175 CPUID 00020f32
I dont know yet how to construct those tables at runtime, nor I'm not sure how 
to create valid data for all processors.

Ok. Thanks,
