[Soekris] 4501 / 1.07: CPUID weirdness...

On a 4501 with comBios 1.07 I get a CPUID of 0x494 the first
time it boots after power-on:
AMD Enhanced Am486DX4/Am5x86 Write-Back (486-class CPU)
Origin = "AuthenticAMD" Id = 0x494 Stepping = 4
But 0x4f4 for subsequent boots:
AMD Am5x86 Write-Back (486-class CPU)
Origin = "AuthenticAMD" Id = 0x4f4 Stepping = 4
Is this a bug in the comBIOS' init code for the Elan SC520 ?
Is it fixed ?
How does one tell what changed between the different comBIOS versions ?

PS: FreeBSD users, please send me email, if there is sufficient interest
we can make a soekris at freebsd.org alias.
