most boards are incompatible because intel chose a different pinout for 
fcpga-ii cpus on purpose. a hardware modification (or an expensive 
adapter) is needed to run a tualatin cpu on such boards. the cpu voltage 
is one of the minor problems.
anyway, we should support all processors and their microcode updates. 
the processor support in general needs some rework as most cpus are 
completely unsupported. the generic functions are mostly useless and 
only control general parameters (if anything at all).
