Add the bit here to allow /proc/cpuinfo to list the feature

This SOB chain looks wrong - if Vincent is the author and you're only
sending the patch, then his "From:" needs to appear before the commit
message. git send-email does that correctly, provided the authorship is
correctly set in the local branch you're sending the patch from.

For large part yes, wrapped code in patch form with commit message etc.
And modified comment a little bit.

Does that still require his address in "From"?

extended ... extension sounds like a tautology, please sanitize.

Haha. True. But looks like that's actually it's name.

If tautologies are not your thing, how about changing comments around 0x80000001,ecx to say "AMD extended features 1" and
for 0x80000008, ebx say "AMD extended features 2"?
