On the subject of CPU support (in v2, at least) is there something to
be careful about, when using opteron 165 (dual core opteron without
registered ECC ram support)

I'm asking that because I have such a CPU and I have really strange
bug when booting linux kernel, and I have been told that it could be
RAM-related... And I'm actually unable to pinpoint the problem myself.
