There is no L3 cache on Propus, so you can't unlock it.

This is true, but only the first quads had this - anything you buy new will be a true Propus with no L3 cache. The easiest way to check is to look at the stepping code on the IHS of the CPU. If it says xxCxx, it's a Deneb core. If it says xxDxx, it's a true Propus core and there's no physical L3 cache on the chip.
