Yes, and no. We used that codeto be able to switch between two
completely different AMD mainboards (different chipsets and different
CPUs) instead of doing normal/fallback. On K8/Fam10 this choice is done
after enabling CAR. So just having unified CAR is worth a whole lot already.
Apart from that, it would be very nice to unify the later K8/Fam10 CPU
code of course. Maybe you want to give it a try?
