       set6x86, get6x86 - access Cyrix control registers


       set6x86 [ -hpsc ] register_index data


       This  utility program allows access to the special control registers of
       the Cyrix 6x86 processors.  This initial manpage is intended to satisfy
       the lintian requirements of a Debian package and will be improved after
       the other serious issues are cleaned up.


       register_index An index to the specified Cyrix 6x86 config register  in
       decimal (e.g. ’24’), hex (’0x18’) or octal (’030’).

       data   The  data  to  program into the specified register (dec|hex|oct)
              (or the bitmask for the -s’ (set) or -c’ (clear) options).


       set6x86 accepts the following options:

       -c     The data is a bitmask for clearing bits in the register.

       -h     The usage information is printed.

       -p     The output is pipeable (in hex format).  Only  the  contents  of
              the register is output.

       -B     We now check /proc/cpuinfo to make sure it is a Cyrix cpu.  This
              option bypasses the check.  It has only been tested on a MediaGX
              chip  and  expects  the  vender  id to start with "Cyrix".  This
              option allows setting other chips without that string.

       -s     The data is a bitmask for setting bits in the register.
