[oi-dev] Core i9 supported ?

after my personal X99 Asus board with a core i7 reached the point
of its very near death, I ordered in a hurry an Asus X299 board and
had to take an i9 7940X Skylake-X Kaby Lake series processor (there
are currently availablity problems for alternatives like the i7-7820X).

Shortly after that, I stumbled over that infamous Phoronix post from
last year:

So the question is: Is the core i9 now supported with the current
Hipster ? Any experiences with a C299 chipset based board ?

It seems that the illumos HCL could have an additional entry for
CPUs supported. Also, newer boards are mostly missing, so I will
add entries for that new board and its components if I have success.

Thanks for any help !
