Can you tell me how to select the vm86 instead of x86emu? Is that v3
only? (I'm using v2!)

That would be the superio IT8716f.

I also noticed that the k8 powernow doesn't work:
'powernow-k8: MP systems not supported by PSB BIOS structure' the kernel
On top of that, the vid voltage is set to 1.35V with coreboot (without
powernow) and to 1.10V (min. speed) - 1.30V (max. speed) booted with
proprietary bios (with powernow), which heats the processor even faster.
