	  This is the processor type of your CPU. This information is
	  used for optimizing purposes. In order to compile a kernel
	  that can run on all supported x86 CPU types (albeit not
	  optimally fast), you can specify "486" here.

	  Note that the 386 is no longer supported, this includes
	  AMD/Cyrix/Intel 386DX/DXL/SL/SLC/SX, Cyrix/TI 486DLC/DLC2,
15
	  UMC 486SX-S and the NexGen Nx586.
16 17 18 19 20 21 22

	  The kernel will not necessarily run on earlier architectures than
	  the one you have chosen, e.g. a Pentium optimized kernel will run on
	  a PPro, but not necessarily on a i486.

	  Here are the settings recommended for greatest speed:
	  - "486" for the AMD/Cyrix/IBM/Intel 486DX/DX2/DX4 or
23
	    SL/SLC/SLC2/SLC3/SX/SX2 and UMC U5D or U5S.
24
	  - "586" for generic Pentium CPUs lacking the TSC
25
	    (time stamp counter) register.
26 27 28 29 30 31 32 33
	  - "Pentium-Classic" for the Intel Pentium.
	  - "Pentium-MMX" for the Intel Pentium MMX.
	  - "Pentium-Pro" for the Intel Pentium Pro.
	  - "Pentium-II" for the Intel Pentium II or pre-Coppermine Celeron.
	  - "Pentium-III" for the Intel Pentium III or Coppermine Celeron.
	  - "Pentium-4" for the Intel Pentium 4 or P4-based Celeron.
	  - "K6" for the AMD K6, K6-II and K6-III (aka K6-3D).
	  - "Athlon" for the AMD K7 family (Athlon/Duron/Thunderbird).
34
	  - "Opteron/Athlon64/Hammer/K8" for all K8 and newer AMD CPUs.
35 36 37
	  - "Crusoe" for the Transmeta Crusoe series.
	  - "Efficeon" for the Transmeta Efficeon series.
	  - "Winchip-C6" for original IDT Winchip.
38
	  - "Winchip-2" for IDT Winchips with 3dNow! capabilities.
39
	  - "AMD Elan" for the 32-bit AMD Elan embedded CPU.
40
	  - "GeodeGX1" for Geode GX1 (Cyrix MediaGX).
41
	  - "Geode GX/LX" For AMD Geode GX and LX processors.
42
	  - "CyrixIII/VIA C3" for VIA Cyrix III or VIA C3.

43
	  - "VIA C3-2" for VIA C3-2 "Nehemiah" (model 9 and above).
44
	  - "VIA C7" for VIA C7.
45 46 47 48 49 50 51
	  - "Intel P4" for the Pentium 4/Netburst microarchitecture.
	  - "Core 2/newer Xeon" for all core2 and newer Intel CPUs.
	  - "Intel Atom" for the Atom-microarchitecture CPUs.
	  - "Generic-x86-64" for a kernel which runs on any x86-64 CPU.

	  See each option's help text for additional details. If you don't know
	  what to do, choose "486".

	  This enables detection, tunings and quirks for Transmeta processors

	  You need this enabled if you want your kernel to run on a
	  Transmeta CPU. Disabling this option on other types of CPUs
	  makes the kernel a tiny bit smaller. Disabling it on a Transmeta
	  CPU might render the kernel unbootable.
