Ok, here's the info from 21326c.pdf (Implementation of Write Allocate in
the K86(tm) Processors)

--- begin fair use extract ---

Write allocate in the AMD-K5(tm) processor is supported only on Models
1, 2, and 3, with a Stepping of 4 or greater. Write allocate in the
AMD-K6(tm) MMX(tm) enhanced processor is supported only on Models with a
Stepping of 1 or greater.

I'm going to bang out a patch for this this weekend. That's about the
only time I'll have to get my system up to snuff with respect to glibc and
stuff... Look for something on or about Saturday evening...
