RDRAND and Ivy Bridge Celerons


I have a system with a Celeron 1007u processor.  This is of the Ivy Bridge generation.  I want to use the RDRAND instruction that was introduced int the Ivy Bridge generation.

Linux says that the processor does not have RDRAND (i.e./proc/cpuinfo does not contain "rdrand").

According errata BV54 that might cause this problem.

Is the Celeron 1007u supposed to have RDRAND?  How can I tell?I haven't found a specification on the Intel web site that clearly states this.
