Looks neat! Any chance for having it released with clear authorship, and 
some generic license? (say, 2-clause BSD for instance, to keep things small)

Does the tool check that it acts on a supported CPU before operating? 
Performing such low-level actions on unsupported CPUs could have very 
unexpected results.

Ideally, a little bit of documentation included in the archive would be 
awesome :) (even as short as a copy/paste of your previous message)
