I think IBM had some special things that were modifications. Supposedly
my model 70 is a special 386 instruction set that has some hybrid CPU in
it. I don't remember the specifics. IBM was fab'ing chips at the time
and had licenses to Intel's IP. So they created a 386 that was somehow
more than / different from a 386. Maybe it was a crippled 486 that only
had the bus of the 386. I don't recall.
