The only things that I have some doubt is the wireless support.
There may be also a need to go with ACPI (some of centrino platform
use now a legacy free BIOS).  And there may be a need to upgrade
XFree (but that is a general though about new video chipsets).

A little note, though.  A centrino processor do not exist.  It is
a Pentium-M, aka Banias, and performance states (aka changing
frequency/voltage) is supported under Linux.
