8.9.1 still alive

There is new 8.9.1 kernel with few improvements:

changed timer hz to 250 from default 100 (some info you can read on

truely universal kernel, works with sse2 and sleep works on sse3 (with ACPIThrotle.kext)

64-bit fix for sse3 em64t cpus (just to remind it exists)

all file in usual place on irc ( #1049)

P.S. SSE2 users may have panic related to appleintelcpupowermanagement.kext(or may not have), if so, delete that kext.
