Is there an easy way to tell what stepping your CPU supports?

Actually, CONFIG_ITANIUM_PTCG is still required if you have systems with
Itanium
processor steppings less than B3. I still have some of these and I'm sure
there are
quite a few others out there who still do as well.

Alan,

The following three Configure.help entries have been confirmed dead, or
not needing help by Keith Owens.

The last of these, CONFIG_IA64_AZUSA_HACKS,  is listed by Keith as
removed by a 2.4.2-ia64-010228 patch, but it still appears in 2.4.3-ac14.
