By using reflection, it is not necessary to instantiate the new class directly in the existing code. Rather the class name is derived from the cpu/os name and is loaded and the constructor called. Note that the existing cpus (x86, amd64, and sparc) code was not modified. Only newly added cpus would go through the reflection code path.
