The NexGen patch is  at http://www.cantrip.org/linux.html, but it is still
listed as ALPHA ... out!

The Cx486 patch is at: ftp://sunsite.unc.edu/pub/Linux/kernel/patches/
and it is against v0.99 and works only with a AHA-1542 (cache coherency!) ...

The Cx5x86 patch is at: ftp://sunsite.unc.edu/pub/Linux/kernel/patches/
and this one is just a kernel module to manipulate the internal settings
of the 5x86 ... good, should be easy to include.

A newer patch for the Cx5x86/6x86 was posted to the kernel list but it
applies to v2.1.5...

So it looks that we will have to define a standard distribution and have
to list everything else as optional software, which could be distributed
on a second CD or be omitted without being accused of crippling Debian.
