Default Bulldozer CPUs and BSODs

We knew about the issues they were having with cache sharing, apparently there are issues with cores locking up as well.

Perhaps a performance reducing patch (like with Phenom 1) is in the works, or perhaps a recall.

In any case, it bears mentioning so people buying AMD can shift their purchases to the last gen Phenom II products, or better yet, to superior intel SB CPUs.
