Well, one more bit of Cyrix fun...
NetBSD recognizes a Cyrix 486dx2 as a 486DLC, this from my system,
recently upgraded (motherboard and CPU) from a DLC to a DX2/66:
CPU: Cx486DLC (Cyrix 486-class CPU)
WARNING: CYRIX 486DLC CACHE UNCHANGED.
It should be noted that the Cx486dx2 should have none of the problems
that the DLC does since it's a "full" 486 and lives in a 486 socket.
The (AMI 486) BIOS on the motherboard is able to tell a Cyrix from an
Intel DX2, even though there are no jumper differences (for the
DX2/66) and happily says Cyrix 486DX2/66.
