Digital and Intel agreement imminent???

Apparently Intel is buying its way out of the lawsuit by $1.5bn for:
rights to use the patents (for use in IA64 presumably)
right to make Alpha 21164 and 21164PC chips (like Samsung and Mitsubishi)
Digital's FAB-6 line (and they'll continue making Alpha's on it!)

or something like that. It's about as clear as mud at the moment. See:

for slightly less F.U.D. on this topic than elsewhere.
