If the line's cpu-string and os-string match the current cpu/os then the rest of the line is parsed and applied. Really only the siqs-gnfs-xover number is used, the rest is just informational (but parsing expects them to be there - it is not robust to missing info). The mult/exp numbers are constants in an exponential trendline fit to the data measured during tune. The freq is unused, I think tune just assigns it the value '42' for now. Because, reasons.
Excellent! Thanks for the extra info. Does the tune_info take precedence over "xover=100," or do I need to comment (% ) that out?
