Well, IA64 specs say that x86 stuff on Itanic is nothing but TSO. But
the web is full of references to processor consistency/ordering (TSO
sans remote write atomicity) regarding x86 native, not TSO. Intel
representatives won't say anything officially (except referencing
pretty meaningless IA32 spec) at all. So go figure.
