VIA VT310DP pipeline configurator

VIA VT-310DP boards sometimes come with a buggy BIOS that configures the CPU pipeline length to a single instruction thus degrading the system performance significantly.

This simple tool reconfigures the pipeline to the full length of 12 instructions.

Depends on msr.ko kernel module providing device /dev/cpu/<CPU>/msr
