The code that Robert has sent to the Linux kernel mailing list is a sample
code that contains some part of other source programs.
The names of source programs and authors are not included in the source
code, since this program was only for private usage.

My apologies. I had misunderstood you yesterday.

That program may increase performances of Neptune based mother board of
about 10%, but with some risks of getting memory errors.
Without memory parity bit, it is a lot dangerous.

That said, I was getting memory errors (in the form of occasional
corruption) before using this program. Now that I'm using it, my
performance has improved and the memory errors have disappeared. I'm
very surprised that my memory problems have resolved themselves with
this, to be perfectly honest.
