ok, forgot about this one

right.. did you consider using the wildcard in the map file
so it'd cover the stepping, having entries like:

GenuineIntel-6-1F-*,v2,nehalemep,core

I haven't thought this one through, but seems we could bypass
those '-stepping' checks.. but probably other changes would be
necessary for the wildcard
