It's not a dual-100MHz module, it's a dual-40MHz module.  It's also
neither a SuperSparc or HyperSparc, but the original Cypress/Fujitsu Sparc
with mbus implementation.

Figure it's got 2 CPU's, each of which is half the speed of a slow
(SM40) SuperSparc.  Older revs (-07 and earlier) are AMP-only and will not
work in MP mode in Solaris 2.x.  Newer revs will only work through Solaris
2.5.1.  This module was never sold with or supported in the SS20, though
it may work.  Do yourself a favor and get a cheap SM50 instead, you'll be
light years ahead in speed.
