The last digit of the value set in cpu_table ( for example 0x695) is the 
stepping value reported by
cat  /dev/cpuinfo. It refers to the release of the processor. It is 
adviseable to verify
that the value corresponding to your cpu is set in cpu_table[].
I have several epia-m boxes some with stepping 1 and some with stepping 8.
In this case, I set {X86_VENDOR_CENTAUR, 0x691 } in cpu_table[] to use 
the box with the cpu wich has stepping 1.
