My Core 2 machines report the following:

0x00000002 = 0x05B0B101,0x005657F0,0x00000000,0x2CB43049

0x05 = undocumented
0xB0 = 128-entry 4-way iTLB
0xB1 = undocumented
0x56 = undocumented
0x57 = undocumented
0xF0 = 64-byte prefetch
0x2C = 32K 8-way 64 bytes/line L1d
0xB4 = undocumented
0x30 = 32K 8-way 64 bytes/line L1i
0x49 = 4M 16-way 64 bytes/line L3

Yes, the L2 is reported as an L3 -- weird.

0x80000005 = 0x00000000,0x00000000,0x00000000,0x00000000
0x80000006 = 0x00000000,0x00000000,0x10008040,0x00000000

That is, no AMD-compatible cache/TLB details are
reported, except for that 4M 16-way 64 bytes/line
L2 cache.

So, until Intel decides to document its undocumented
cache/TLB descriptors, the HotChips 18 presentation
is, uhm, useful.
