Can we have this re-worded so it doesn't have an implied "all Intel chipsets",
perhaps adding "chipsets that support the Intel vPro technology", or similar?

(And though I found that at least *some* vPro-capable chipsets do IME, I didn't
find a statement that *all* vPro will do it, so I'm still confused, thus no
patch from me...)
