Hi all,

My new Opteron 165 system shows up as an unidentified CPU.  It works 
just fine, and the on-chip string identifies it correctly, but I thought 
it would be worth noting that the detection routine doesn't know about 
it.  This is -current (i386 generic-MPACPI) from the beginning of the month.
