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.
