At some point, it would be really nice if the AMD side of things could
work to kick the magic number habit on these things. This:

arch/x86/include/asm/intel-family.h

has been really handy. It lets you do things like

grep INTEL_FAM6_SKYLAKE arch/x86

That's a *LOT* more precise than:

egrep -i '0x5E|94' arch/x86
