The revision with these bugs fixed is 2F03. Up to now all processors
used in current products are 2F01/02.
2F03 is in production and expected in this summer.

Shouldn't these options be used unconditionally? It seems a kernel build
should rather fail than a possibly unreliable kernel be built - possibly
even without the user noticing the problem.
Zhangjin has been busy preparing for his graduation paper.
I just talked to him. He said later batches of 2F processor is not affected by
these two problems, according to Zhang Fuxin, manager of Lemote.
I am not sure on which model of Fuloong and Yeeloong these "good" 2F processors
have been used. I think Fuxin should know this.
If Fuxin could told us now, we can make a new patch. In this patch, we decide
whether to add these options or not base on the model number.
Otherwise, for now, I think we should enable these options unconditionally.
Sorry, I got Zhang Fuxin's email wrong. Now fixed.
