Tolapai cpu cache info addition
Note: Hardware is in-house. Goeff has it set up in his cube.
Verified the patch on Tolapai with -68.EL kernel, but it requires base Tolapai
patch which I don't own so I'm not posting to rhkernel right now. Need to follow
up with Jeff Garzik who owns it, and get it reassigned, or wait.
Actually I tested with -68.10.EL kernel. Rebuilt with latest -68.18.EL and
posted to rhkernel.
Committed in 68.20.EL . RPMS are available at http://people.redhat.com/vgoyal/rhel4/
added to RHEL4.7 Driver Updates:
Correct cache info of Intel Tolapai chipset is now added. This ensures that the
hardware is listed correctly.
