	My 6x86-200+ (underclocked at 133MHz... my motherboard doesn't
support the 75MHz bus) gets just over 300kk/s with X and the usual mess of
daemons running, so 350kk/s doesn't sound too out of line for a 200+ clocked
at the normal 150MHz. Also, if I'm not mistaken, the M2 is Cyrix's
equivalent of the MMX, which doesn't affect the RC5 algorithm at all, so
there shouldn't be any significant keyrate difference between the 200+ and
the M2 200+.

	My Pentium 133, BTW, only does 180kk/s at the same clock speed.
Cyrices really are faster... :)
