Well geode is technically i586 even though it has cmov. I use two of
them on a pretty regular basis. There are quite a few of the community
who have XOs as part of the testing program that handed them out in
the F10 devel period and I know a number of RedHat engineers have them
as well so there is a least some hardware around for testing.
