 Is there a difference? Does it really matter if you lie to your kernel?

 I think you need to re-read.

 If I look hard enough... I'm sure I can find something that will reach into
your bios and let you turn your whole machine inside out. Strangely enough... I
don't really see a point. The discussion concerned configuring ones machine to
see a particular "hardware suite" properly. Whether you change the actual
hardware or you change the way the software {like your bios} sees it you achieve
the same end.
