The following package has been upgraded in the Cygwin distribution:

* cpuid 20211121

The program displays detailed information about the CPU(s) gathered from
the CPUID instruction, and also determines the exact model of CPU(s).

Whereas /proc/cpuinfo is like an abstract of the features important to
Linux in a system, cpuid is a standalone utility which writes a paper
expounding on every feature in each CPU's architecture and what it can
do, at about the one line per bit level.

It is updated and released frequently and appears current with Intel and
AMD information and supports other vendors' chips.

See the project home page for more information:

For information about changes since the previous Cygwin release,
see below or /usr/share/doc/cpuid/ChangeLog after installation.


Changes

* Removed __LARGE64_FILES from __CYGWIN__.
* Renamed macros with names starting with underscores, which are
  reserved names in C: __THING -> MaskTHING, _THING -> ShftTHING.
* Added to (synth) decoding: AMD Ryzen 1000/2000/3000/4000/5000 series
  numbers, Epyc Gen numbers.
* Distinguish (synth) decoding: AMD (8,15),(2,0) Dali CPUs: Ryzen vs.
  other, Threadripper CPUs. For Zen & Zen+, only the brand
  distinguishes; for Zen 2 (and rumored for Zen 3), there are distinct
  models, Great Horned Owl & Banded Kestrel, Grey Hawk from Renoir.
* Added (synth) & (uarch synth) decoding for Intel (0,6),(11,14) Golden
  Cove (Alder Lake) from Coreboot, (0,6),(6,7) Palm Cove (Cannon Lake),
  (0,6),(10,11) Redwood Cove (Meteor Lake-N), (0,6),(11,10) Raptor Cove
  (Raptor Lake-P) from DPTF.
* Added (synth) decoding for Intel (0,6),(11,7) Raptor Lake, from LX.
* Updated (uarch synth) phys strings for Intel 14nm and 10nm process
  nodes using 14nm+, 14nm++, 14nm+++, 10nm+, 10nm++.
