This little utility will cool your Athlon/Duron processor on Via KT133 or KX133 (VT8363 or VT8371/VT82C686x) chipsets during idle.

Apparently this problem exists also on Linux systems. So I've made a mini-version for the penguin.
It simply sets the Northbridges "enable bus disconnect on STPGNT" bit and enters an idle loop that puts the CPU into STPGNT state.
Originally I had only written the source but now Stefan Kraus has made this packet that includes a makefile and an installer for SUSE distributions (Thanks, Stefan).
