That's not entirely true. The was no changes in CPU support from F-12
to F-13. What has happened was a change in gcc which causes issues
with F-13 on geode processors. There's a bit missing from gcc for
geode support that would need to be added. dsd and cjb know more of
the details.

If there's demand for it and its considered a 'good thing' I would
consider pushing sugar 0.88 back to F-12. Not guaranteed, but its
something that could be considered.
