Problem here is that AMD is not a subarchitecture. AFAIK a subarchitecture 
needs different kernel support from other subarchitectures. As an AMD 
processor is x86 compatible, it is not a subarchitecture but just an x86 
processor from a manufacturer other than Intel...

Also, even if AMD is currently the most common x86 clone, it is not the 
only one (certainly not historically).
