 Much better:
 cpu0 at mainbus0 apid 0: AMD 686-class, 1808MHz, id 0x20f32
 cpu0: AMD Cool`n'Quiet Technology 1800 MHz
 cpu0: available frequencies (Mhz): 1000 1800
 cpu0: WARNING: errata present, BIOS upgrade may be
 cpu0: WARNING: necessary to ensure reliable operation
 cpu1 at mainbus0 apid 1: AMD 686-class, 1808MHz, id 0x20f32
 And can we please, PLEASE get the vendor's ID string in the regular dmesg 
 output?  I know about cpuctl, but there are situations where that wouldn't 
 be an easy tool for me to use.  After all, it's not like dmesg doesn't 
 spit out other silly, extraneous information; the system identification at 
 the very beginning of my dmesg (from ACPI, I think?) says
 System manufacturer System Product Name (System Version)
 which I'm sure is my mainboard vendor's fault.  The point is I'm not upset 
 about it being there - I would rather it be there and print out correct 
 info in situations where it does work than not have it print out anything 
 at all.
