Agreed, I've run i686 kernel/openssl on a geode based Fit-PC for 18
months (until F11 when it went to i586) and it supported it without
massive issues. RPM/yum support is a different issue and will need to
be addressed, but I'm sure that's probably a basic patch to identify a
i586 that has cmov as being i686 capable.
