I fear this as well. In fact, I'm relatively certain that they /do/
both use the same PCI ID. Hence why lspci lists KT133/KM133. But I
hope to big mistaken. If not, the only way I can see of detecting that
it is a KM133 is by checking what device 01:00 is an S3 ProSavage.

Hopefully I'll here back from VIA with a definitive answer about when to
clear what bits, though.
