Actually this change wasn't needed (I think).  Most companies have
trademark guidelines which say you should add a trademark symbol after
first significant use, but don't need it on later uses on the same
page, and we already have a (tm) on the "Athlon" world a bit before.

The "I think" above is due to the fact that AMD doesn't have any
public trademark guidelines (or they are hidden on the website) so
it's really impossible to be really sure what the requirements are.

I'm not going to bitch more about it, I just wanted to point out that
it seems redundant.
