I changed the TypeCreator of the extension from Crescendo in order to load
it first. Seems that it is a little faster (mostly the graphical interface.
More responsive ). But nothing appears in /proc/cpuinfo
The L2 cahce from the motherborad (256k) is still there and nothing else.
What test (speed test) could let me know if there is a difference between
the 2 configurations (Crescendo ext loaded or not)?
