amd_geodelx.h could/should be cleaned to only have POST codes that Geode 
LinuxBIOS is actually using. I think that the entire geode list is in 
there. Also, in my experience it is ok to have overlapping post codes as 
long as there are key post codes that are not duplicated to indicate the 
areas that you are in.
