I forgot to mention: I have a plain old retail Intel Celeron (I think
-- it's not in front of me right now) that has Flex LC. I suspect
that, going forward, all new Intel CPUs will support Flex LC. I
really wish that Intel would document all of the detailed capabilities
of all their CPUs somewhere.

There has been some talk of how the driver could support old CPUs. It
would involve a rather different LE being signed by Intel, but it
should be more or less transparent to user code if it happens.
