The stock x86_64 Fedora 4 kernel provided in the updates-released repo
is built with the "Generic-x86-64" config parameter selected in the
kernel config file.  There are two other processor family options
available: "AMD-Opteron/Athlon64" and "Intel EM64T".  For an Athlon64
CPU like mine, does anyone know what advantages might derive from
rebuilding the kernel with the AMD-Opteron/Athlon64 config parameter
