--- Comment #1 from H. Peter Anvin <hpa at zytor.com> ---
Unfortunately, the CPU directives are not well implemented in NASM and need a
lot more work. At this point, their main purpose is to handle the cases where
it has to generate different code for different CPUs, e.g. jump-overs for long
conditional jumps. It is not at all ideal, but unless someone steps up to
enhance it, it is unlikely to change.
