BTW, I would set up the _CPU and _FPU in TOS to 68040. I think this is
the right thing to do, compared with Milan, Medusa or Hades. But would
it hurt the 68060? I don't think so. There would be just a simple .PRG
in AUTO folder that would change the _CPU and _FPU later.

What I would _not_ like to do is to put CPU and FPU probing into TOS,
mainly because I don't have all three CPUs available for testing.
